Thank you for considering to be a volunteer in the Meramec Valley R-III School District. Volunteering helps create a positive community, makes school better, and increases student achievement.

If you plan to volunteer, attend field trips, or help at classroom parties, you will first need to complete the background check process. Two background checks are now required, and the process takes up to 10 days to complete.

We suggest families plan ahead and complete the process prior to the start of each school year. Volunteers should review the links below. Please contact your child's school office if you have any questions.
