Parental involvement is very important to both the students and faculty at Saint John's school.
The presence of volunteers provides our faculty the opportunity to offer a wider rage of programs for our students.
We are always looking for volunteers in the classrooms, library, lunchroom, office and playground.
To be a volunteer at Saint Johns there are three steps.
1. Background check
In order to protect those whom we serve all parish, school and diocesan employees must undergo a criminal background check. Certain volunteers, including, but not limited to, those who have regular or unsupervised contact with minors, must undergo a criminal background check. Certain criminal convictions may prevent the employment of applicants. Similarly, certain criminal convictions may prevent volunteer applicants from serving in some capacities.
2. Code of Conduct
Archdiocesan Codes of Pastoral Conduct for employees and volunteers, promulgated in 2007, establish standards of ministerial behavior and appropriate boundaries for clergy and parish, school and diocesan employees as well as volunteers who have regular or unsupervised contact with minors.
3. Virtus Training
VIRTUS training is a three hour awareness session which better equips adults to protect children in the world around them. It is required of all clergy, deacons, school and parish employees as well as all volunteers who are in regular or unsupervised contact with children under the age of 18.
