Volunteering helps create a positive community, makes school better, and increases student achievement. Thank you for considering to be a volunteer in the MVR-III School District. We suggest families plan ahead and complete the process prior to the start of each school year. The volunteer background check process takes up to 10 days to complete with the two systems. If you plan to volunteer, attend field trips, or help at classroom parties, you need to complete the background check process. Two background checks are now required. Please contact your child's school office, if you have any questions.
