Parent Volunteers

Parent volunteerism is a critical component of the education of Stoughton’s children.  There are many opportunities throughout the year for parents to volunteer.  If you are interested in volunteering, please notify your child’s teacher or the main office.  Your service as a volunteer is deeply appreciated. Students in the Stoughton Public Schools have the right to expect that all volunteers will keep information about the students confidential. As such you will be required to sign a Student Privacy Statement and Volunteer Confidentiality Agreement when you become a volunteer.

Along with the volunteer form, we will be sending a CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information).  Please be aware that the Massachusetts State Law requires every volunteer to fill out a CORI before he or she can participate in our volunteer programs, classroom activities or field trips.  A CORI must be completed every year. You are encouraged to fill one out in September so that you are covered for the year.

Please be aware that if you are interested in chaperoning a field trip you must also have fingerprints on file with the school department. Additional information on fingerprinting will be forthcoming.
