Background Checks Now Required for School Volunteers
The governor has signed legislation last week to require any individuals who are current or prospective volunteers of a school department and who may have direct or unmonitored contact with children or students on school premises to undergo a state criminal background check.
If you are planning on volunteering at your school this year, please obtain your BCI check soon! This includes volunteering for PTA program/events, volunteering in your child's classroom, and chaperoning for field trips. Please note that you will not be able to volunteer in any capacity in any school if a state criminal background check is not completed.
There are a couple of options available to obtain a state criminal background check (BCI):

In a few school weeks the 2014-2015 school year will come to a close. It has been an exciting year for students and staff both academically and athletically. Music teacher Brian Flynn was awarded a Golden Apple by Commissioner Gist. Nicole Green, an elementary teacher at Robertson was nominated for Warwick Teacher of the Year. Nicole and Barbara Pellegrino, an elementary teacher at Scott, received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics. Dr. Caroline Savery, a Warwick Veterans High School Science teacher, was the local winner of the Barnes & Noble, “My Favorite Teacher Contest,” a recognition from a winning essay written by Veterans High School senior Brianna Bier. The Pilgrim ladies soccer team is State Champions and the Unified Volleyball team from Toll Gate High School is Division IV State Champions. Spring playoffs are currently underway and we wish them all good luck. We acknowledge the community support for Evan Huddon on a Facebook contest to win a new van for transporting him to school.
For those students who need to attend summer school, the general information can be found on the Warwick School web page. The dates of the summer school are July 6-August 4, 2015.
