According to CPS there are two types of volunteers at school.
- Level 1 volunteers can work alone with students, pull small groups in the the hallway, go on class field trips, or are in the building over 10 hours per week. This includes if you run a club or host a student event after school that is Hamilton based.
- Level 2 volunteers is anyone working with Hamilton students in a setting with a CPS employee the entire time for less than 10 hours per week. This would include volunteering for a class party, reading in the library, restocking library books, or volunteering at a school day event.
Please note that if you want to be allowed in the building when students are present anywhere outside of the main office or counselor’s office, you must be an approved volunteer.
Step 1: The process for becoming a volunteer at Hamilton begins with an application process. Please click here to apply. You choose which level volunteer you would like to apply for. If you are already a level 2 and would like to be level one, enter new volunteer as the option.
Step 2: After you complete your application please submit an email to Denise and attach a photocopy of your ID or come to the main office with your ID so we can keep a photocopy on record.
Step 3: You will receive an email from CPS with next steps.
- Level 1 volunteers will receive instructions on how to move forward with fingerprinting and TB testing (this can take a few weeks).
- Level 2 volunteers will receive an email when they are eligible to volunteer (approx 48 hours from submitting ID).
If you believe you have already submitted an application but haven’t heard from CPS, please email Ms. Denise. She can confirm what step your application is on at this time.
