Thank you for your interest in volunteering in the Berlin Public Schools. The Board of Education recognizes the importance of school volunteers at all levels of schooling. Volunteers can enhance collaboration between the school and community, broaden the school’s educational environment and ultimately enrich students’ school experience. Please contact the school where you are interested in volunteering for information on current volunteer opportunities.
All individuals seeking to volunteer in the Berlin Public Schools must fill out and sign the School Volunteer Security Check Consent Form prior to volunteering. The Department of Children and Families Authorization for Release of Information for DCF CPS Search must also be completed and submitted with this form. Please submit the forms in person to Human Resources, Berlin Board of Education, 238 Kensington Road, Berlin, CT 06037.
No person whose name is listed on the Department of Children and Families (DCF) Child Abuse and Neglect Registry or who is registered as a sex offender under state or federal law may volunteer in any district schools. Failure to provide complete or accurate information on the School Volunteer Security Check Consent Form will disqualify an individual from volunteering in any district school.
To complete the security and background check forms you have two options:
1. Print them out and fill them in by hand.
2. Save the forms to your computer, type in your responses, print and sign the forms.
Please submit the forms in person to Human Resources, Berlin Board of Education, 238 Kensington Road, Berlin, CT 06037.
