Procedures for Volunteers
I. VOLUNTEERING IN THE CLASSROOM
If you wish to volunteer in a classroom at Uplands Elementary School, it will be necessary to complete the Criminal Record Check process. This needs to be renewed every 5 years.
There are two ways to complete this process.
First, you may use the following link to complete the FREE and QUICK process online.
The access code that you will need for this is M48TVPA8PA.
Please see the office if you would like assistance with this online process. Please allow 7-10 days for this process.
Second option is to complete the following attached forms. Please allow 1-4 weeks for this process.
These completed forms must be taken to the Terrace RCMP Detachment.
Once a computerized criminal record check has been run, the completed Record Check will be mailed to the School Board Office where it will be kept on file.
II. VOLUNTEERING AS A DRIVER
If you wish to volunteer as a driver for class trips, etc., there are 3 other forms which must be completed, in addition to the Criminal Record Check. New forms must be completed each year.
1. A Driver’s Abstract must be obtained from ICBC in person or by calling 604-661-2233. The original is then presented to the school office before you will be able to transport students.
*If any of these forms are not completed by the time you wish to volunteer, you will be asked to return when everything is in order! Thank you for your cooperation and your assistance.
