Visitors and Volunteers

Become a Volunteer in Green Local Schools

 
The Green Local School District Board of Education recognizes that certain programs and activities can be enhanced through the use of volunteers who have particular knowledge or skills that will be helpful to members of the staff responsible for the conduct of those programs and activities. To ensure student safety, the Board of Education asks all volunteers to complete a background screening for a nominal charge of $19.45. 
 
Once the screening has been completed, the volunteer will receive an identification badge in the mail. When it's time to volunteer at one of the district buildings, just present your volunteer badge and photo ID at the security vestibule.
 
No volunteer will be turned away due to the inability to pay for the background screening. Financial assistance is available at this link.
 
If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Human Resources and Administrative Services at 330-896-7584.

You are considered a building visitor and do not need to be screened. All visitors to the district must present photo identification upon arrival in order to advance beyond the main office. Your photo ID will be scanned to check for sex offender databases, custody alerts, restraining and protection orders. You will asked to wear a temporary visitor badge while you are in the building.

Will I still need to leave my driver’s license in the office once I have my volunteer ID badge?

 As a volunteer, you must present photo identification upon arrival in order to advance beyond the main office. Your photo ID will be scanned to check for sex offender databases, custody alerts, restraining and protection orders. Your ID will be returned to you.
