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.
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. For day trips, potential chaperones simply need to complete the short online application process.
Overnight trips will require a more in-depth 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.)
