Eagleview Elementary Volunteer


“Doing whatever it takes.”


Welcome to Your New Home

Eagleview Elementary


Eagleview Elementary School has always been fortunate to have a large community of parent volunteers. We realize that volunteers are an important part of the school but with regards to volunteers we also need to:

  • Provide for the safety of students, staff and
  • others in the building
  • Maintain academic integrity
  • Sustain accountability by knowing who is
  • working in the school
  • Comply with Superintendent Policy 4300

Let’s talk…


District Policies

As a volunteer, you should be familiar with some important district policies. While we’ve included brief summaries below, we encourage you to read these policies in their entirety. Each school and district department has a complete policy manual that you can request to review. In addition, you can find the full policies by visiting Simply search for a specific policy by code number. You can also request a paper copy from the Communications Division, 720-972-4149.


Supervision of Volunteers (Superintendent Policy Code: 4300)

School volunteers work during the regular school days under the

supervision of the principal or designee.. Volunteers shall complete

a volunteer application and be screened prior to providing ongoing

volunteer services.

Discipline (Superintendent Policy Code: 5145.4)

Although students rarely have behavior problems while working with

volunteers, our schools have detailed discipline plans. The responsibility for discipline rests with the professional staff. Volunteers may not discipline students. Please make

the teacher aware of any discipline problem that might arise while working with a student.

Dismissal of Students (Superintendent Policy Code: 5113.2)

Volunteers may never dismiss a student from school. Children who must leave school early for any reason must receive permission from the school office and sign out before leaving. Under no circumstances may a volunteer take a student off campus. Volunteers may not walk or drive students to their homes unless the child’s parent has notified the school office in advance and given permission for the volunteer to do so.

Dress and Behavior (Superintendent Policy Code: 4100 and 5140.1)

Take your lead from the professional staff and dress appropriately for the job you are doing. Casual clothing is fine. Volunteers, like school staff, set an example for students. Volunteers’ speech and behavior should serve as good models for students to follow.


Student Dress (Superintendent Policy Code: 5140.1)

  • The following items are prohibited throughout the district:
      • All attire representing all professional athletic teams,
      • Clothing or accessories that could be used as a weapon or might otherwise injure the wearer including items with spikes or loose hanging chains,
      • Clothing or accessories that promote drugs, alcohol or tobacco either by brand or message,
      • Attire, accessories or manners of grooming indicative of affiliation with a gang, secret society or disruptive group,
      • Hats and caps may be worn outside school buildings as appropriate for the weather, except as otherwise prohibited under this procedure.
  • Since volunteers may not discipline students, please refer an offending student to a
  • district employee.

HIV and Other Communicable Diseases (Superintendent Policy Code: 4151.1)

Because of increases in the general population of HIV and other communicable

diseases, the district has adopted “universal precautions,” as

recommended by the Center for Disease Control. To safeguard

student and adults, employees and volunteers should regard all

body fluids as potentially infectious; avoid direct contact if possible;

wear gloves; wash hands thoroughly; and report injuries to the

nurse. Students are instructed not to touch blood or body fluids and to

seek adults for assistance. For more information, consult the school nurse or health aide.


Use of Alcohol or Illegal Drugs (Superintendent Policy Code: 4145.2)

The consumption of or being in an impaired

state apparently caused by the use of

alcoholic beverages while on the job or so as

to affect job performance is ground for

disciplinary action. The district may require

testing by an experienced, reputable laboratory

for reasonable suspicion that one’s use of alcohol or illegal drugs

is affecting job performance.

Tobacco Use (Superintendent Policy Code: 4145.3)

The use of tobacco products at any school-sponsored

event or activity and on all Adams 12 Five Star

Schools property, including all district buildings,

district grounds, district-owned and leased vehicles

and sites leased by the district is prohibited. This

policy applies to employees, students, visitors and

all other members of the public.


Student Records (Superintendent Policy Code: 5125)

  • Access to student records is limited to:
    • parents or legal guardians of students under age

18 who present proper identification;

    • students age 18 and over who present proper
    • identification;
    • staff members, such as the principal, teachers,

counselors, nurses and other personnel of the

school district who have a legitimate interest in

inspecting such records; and

    • upon request from other schools, when a student

graduates, transfers or withdraws.

  • Information may be released or may be denied to other
  • third parties by parents, legal guardians and/or adult
  • students.

Nondiscrimination/Harassment (Superintendent Policy Code: 8400)

  • The Board of Education is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination in
  • relation to race, sex, religion, national background, age, marital status
  • and handicaps. District policies, programs and activities should foster
  • a climate of inclusiveness, in which all individuals have the opportunity
  • to participate. The district encourages positive experiences in human
  • values for children and adults who have differing personal and family
  • characteristics or who come from various socioeconomic, racial and ethnic groups.
  • Sexual harassment is expressly prohibited throughout Adams 12 Fiver Star
  • Schools. All persons associated with the school district are expected to
  • conduct themselves at all times so as to provide an atmosphere free from
  • sexual harassment. Sexual harassment may include, by way of example only:
    • sex-oriented verbal joking, harassment or abuse;
    • pressure for sexual activity;
    • suggesting or demanding sexual involvement accompanied by implied or
    • explicit statements, threats or promises concerning one’s grades, employment
    • status, or similar personal concerns;
    • any unwelcome touching, such as patting, pinching, or constant brushing
    • against another’s body;
    • repeated remarks with sexual or demeaning implications;
    • any conduct or communication which is of a sexual nature, or has sexual
    • connotations or overtones, and which is unwelcome by the person (s)
    • subject to the conduct or communication.

Grievance procedures are available to any person performing services on behalf of the school district, including volunteers. All matters involving sexual harassment shall remain confidential, to the extent possible and provided by law. Filing of a grievance shall not reflect upon the individual’s status, except in the case of knowingly making a false allegation. For guidance in use of this policy, contact the Office of Legal Services, 720-972-4000.


Employee/Authorized Volunteer Protection (Superintendent Policy Code: 4148)

The district has policies and procedures providing protection for employees and

volunteers in the instance of assault upon, disorderly conduct toward, harassment of, the

making knowingly, of a false allegation of child abuse or any alleged criminal offense

and/or damage to personal property directed toward a district employee or other person

performing services on behalf of the school district, which occurs on school district

property or while performing assigned duties. To initiate this process, the district

employee or volunteer shall file a written complaint with the building principal.
