Volunteer Information

Volunteers are needed and are greatly appreciated at your child's school. Donating a few precious hours of your time can make all the difference.


Do you want to volunteer at your child’s school? Prospective volunteers for the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation are required to fill out these forms and receive approval before volunteering:


All school volunteers are required to complete a comprehensive background check according to P-H-M School Policy 8120. The background checks will be completed a minimum of every 3 years. The Volunteer application form must completed prior to being approved as a volunteer. If you are currently approved as a volunteer, you should receive an email with information to print your
volunteer badge. If you do not, please notify the front office. Your background check will include:

  • Indiana State Police Criminal Records
  • Address Verification
  • National Sex Offender Registry Check
  • County Criminal Check
  • Department of Corrections Check
  • This check will also include the ArrestAlert monitoring


When approved, volunteers will receive a Volunteer ID Badge/Barcode.


All volunteers are asked to comply with the following guidelines: 

  • Volunteers must remember to have your driver's license with you every time you enter school along with your printed Volunteer Badge/Barcode.
  • Volunteers are not to bring young children with them when they volunteer.
  • All volunteers must observe all safety and security rules and procedures.
