The Epping School District recognizes the valuable contribution made to the total school program through the volunteer assistance of parents and other citizens. The District protects our volunteers by issuing a Volunteer Appointment which provides immunity under NH State Statute. Every volunteer must also complete a Volunteer Service Statement and Agreement attesting to being 18 years of age and agreeing to the terms of volunteer appointment.
Volunteers who serve on an on-going basis, who have regular contact with students, or who have duties involving one-to-one contact with students, or any other volunteer so designated by the School Board or Superintendent shall be screened through the District's regular background checking process and the criminal records check law procedure. As a general rule volunteers with continued service will be exempted from the annual requirement. However, a break in service of one year will require a new background check. The District also reserves the right to perform a background check on any volunteer at any time.
The new bullying law also requires volunteers to receive annual training on bullying.
If you are interested in volunteering, please notify the school directly.
Background checks are administered through the District Office.
Thank you for your service to the children of Epping!
