volunteer training required for all school volunteers

 

The Colts Neck School District requires that all parents who volunteer in the schools complete an online Volunteer Training session. This is not a PTO policy, and the training applies to ALL who volunteer in the schools--those who are PTO members and those who are not. Non-members who wish to chaperone trips, volunteer for archery, or for other school-run projects will also be required to complete the online training.

 

All PTO members who wish to volunteer on committees that involve an in-school presence will be required to complete the Volunteer Training session. You can access this online training by clicking on the PARENTS tab on the district's website: www.coltsneckschools.org.  

 

Please take a look at all the activities you can volunteer for below. To get more information, or to volunteer, please email the contact listed under each activity. Thank you for your support!
