There is a new CPS policy that all volunteers/chaperones need to fill out an online CPS Volunteer application.
In order to volunteer at Canty, help with events, chaperone field trips, and assist in classrooms, all parents must complete the new CPS Volunteer application and be approved. Please make sure you include you child(ren) name in the application. If you are planning of chaperoning field trips, you must apply for Level I which requires a TB test and fingerprints as chaperoning duties may require supervising groups of students without direct teacher supervision
Many of our students participate in field trips, both within traditional school hours as well as overnight, it is imperative chaperones have completed the volunteer process.
Parents who do not complete the volunteer application will not be selected to chaperone.
CPS employees who volunteer at schools other than where they are employed, must complete a volunteer application in order to be eligible to participate. (This process allows us to verify employment. Active employees do not go through the background check process.)
