Back to school: New policies


There are new procedures for parents wishing to volunteer in their student’s schools this coming school year. State law requires all staff and volunteers have anti-bullying training. A training webinar has been posted on the HSE website for parents to watch and then verify completion of the training.

Another change is the procedures for obtaining a volunteer criminal history check. Parents who are new or need to renew their background checks can now do so online. There is now a $13 fee for the background check that is good for three years.

Information for both of these changes can be found on the HSE website under “Parent Resources > PTO and Volunteering” or go directly to this web link:
