General Information about volunteering at Holy Cross Catholic School:

Volunteers assist the school in providing for the development and education of the students and provide a benefit to the school.

Volunteer Background Checks:

The school reserves the right to require volunteers in any school program or activity to undergo a background check. Volunteers working with students four or more times during the school year must also complete online training through Praesidiuminc.com. Ordinarily any person with an adult criminal conviction is not eligible to serve. The school further reserves the right to decline to accept the services of a volunteer and to request a volunteer to withdraw from service in school activities whenever, in the judgment of the school, it is in the best interest of the school to do so.

Volunteer Code:

Volunteers serve to enhance the school's ability to provide for the students' development and to benefit the school. They serve in a variety of capacities, which include, but are not limited to: School Advisory Council and committees, Parents' Association Board and Committees, Annual Auction Committee, classroom assistance to teachers, lunch program, Classroom Liaisons, field trip chaperones, and other activities relating to the talents and gifts of the volunteer population.

Volunteers serving in the school will support and model the moral teachings of the Catholic Church and function faithfully within the mission and structures of the school, parish, and Archdiocese with proper respect for those serving in ministries.

Volunteers work in a collaborative role with others ministering to the development of the children and the school as an educational institution. Volunteers are asked to recognize confidentiality as a living principle and respect the dignity of those with whom they work and come into contact.

Volunteers accept responsibility to use contacts made through the school in such a way so as not to disrupt the peace, order, and tranquility of the school community.

Should volunteers come into conflict on school/parish related issues, it is the responsibility of both to resolve the dispute through personal diplomacy and/or an executive decision by school principal and/or the pastor of the parish.

Any person who has a conflict with a school/parish volunteer outside of the boundaries of school/parish activities must settle that dispute outside of and without involving or using school/parish resources.
