Raptor for Parent Volunteers

Posted Sep 6, 2019 | Category: Informational
Good Afternoon Ames Families-

Last year we implemented Raptor at the end of the school year for parent volunteers.

We are going to be using Raptor again this school year.  I want to share the following information with any parent groups/volunteers at Ames.

Please visit   https://www.district96.org/apps/pages/volunteer  or   http://bit.ly/raptor96  if you are planning on volunteering at Ames Elementary School this school year.

There are two levels of volunteers. The levels associated with each volunteer function are based on being under the direct supervision of District 96 staff.

  • A Level 1 Volunteer is always under the supervision of District 96 staff and will be requested to complete an online application to complete a background check using the national sex offender database.

    • Level 1 at Ames include the following volunteer opportunities
      • Fun Lunch
      • Mystery Readers
      • Library Volunteers
      • Classroom Volunteers
      • Classroom Parties (includes Field Day)
      • Talent Show Auditions
      • Science in a Bag
      • Book Fair
  • A Level 2 Volunteer may not be under the direct supervision of District 96 staff and will be requested to complete an online application and submit their Social Security Number to complete a criminal background check (including the National Criminal Database and National Sex Offender Database).

    • Level 2 at Ames include the following volunteer opportunities
      • Junior Great Books
      • Field Trips

Once you choose how you are volunteering, the system will prompt you on what information you need to provide.

Thank you and let me know if you have any questions.

A.F. Ames Elementary School
