Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Chester-East Lincoln School. Our school needs great volunteers! Research shows that when parents are involved at school, students are more successful academically and behaviorally. 

CEL depends on volunteers and values their contributions to enhance the programs and services provided for students. Volunteers are important members of our CEL team and family.

To ensure the safety of our students, volunteers who will be at the school during school hours when students are present, must complete an application, undergo a criminal background screening, and understand their role as a mandated reporter under the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act. Parents that are interested in helping in the classroom or chaperoning school field trips must complete the volunteer process at least ten days prior to the volunteer assignment. 

Become a volunteer by completing these steps:

1. Complete the Volunteer Application.   (Instructions)

2. Fill out Disclosure and Authorization Form to complete a background check.  To cover the cost of the background check, please make a check out to CEL for $10.

3. Sign Acknowledgement of Mandated Reporter Status Form.

4. Return the documents to the office. Once the office receives the results of the criminal background check, the volunteer will be notified.
