Volunteer Opportunities

The Great Valley public schools value and encourage our parents and community members to volunteer in our schools. There are many volunteer opportunities available through the school, classroom teacher, or PTO.

Volunteer Classifications

Tier I Volunteers

Tier I volunteers are those volunteers who will be individually responsible for the welfare of a child or children, or who will have direct contact with a child or children. This means they will be involved directly with the care, supervision, guidance, or control of children, or will have routine interaction with children. Tier I volunteers are required to obtain clearances every 60 months before working in our schools. 

Tier II Volunteers

Tier II volunteers are those volunteers who will not be providing care, supervision, guidance, or control of children, or who will not have routine interaction with children. Examples of volunteers include guest readers, classroom party helpers, attendees at performances, etc.

Legal guidance is available to help determine which volunteers need to obtain clearances. 

Required Clearances

Tier I volunteers are required to obtain legal clearances every 60 months.
