New requirements for ALL school volunteers

As of July 1, 2012, Georgia law states that anyone volunteering in the schools, anywhere within the school: classroom, Media Center, or on field trips, is now a MANDATED REPORTER and is required to report any suspected child abuse or neglect. We cannot allow anyone to volunteer if they haven’t completed the following steps:

Please take a few minutes this weekend to fulfill the 3 requirements listed below.

1. All volunteers must complete the Parent Volunteer Video http://media2.fultonschools.org/DistrictContent/Training/ChildAbuseandNeglect/player.html slideshow and submit the Certification to the front desk at Holcomb Bridge MS.

2. Provide the Volunteer Abuse Training Verification Form http://school.fultonschools.org/es/medlockbridge/Documents/Volunteer%20AbuseTrainingVerification%20Form.pdf

3. Submit the Volunteer Information Form that can be found at http://portal.fultonschools.org/departments/Operations/Safety_Security/Documents/Volunteer%20Information%20Form%202012.pdf.

ALL THREE forms must be completed and submitted to the front office in order to volunteer at HBMS.
