Who needs MVP training?

Only Tier I volunteers,  who are going to be working one-on-one with students. Roles falling under this category:

  • Classroom tutor
  • Mentor
  • Classroom assistant

These volunteers complete an application (click here), attend a short training (click here for times), sign the standards of conduct and complete a fingerprint background screen.  Volunteers are screened and trained free of charge.

Tier II volunteers DO NOT need to complete the MVP training. These volunteer roles include:

  • Room parent
  • Library volunteer
  • Field trip chaperone
  • Classroom party volunteer
  • Committee volunteer

Tier II volunteers are coordinated directly at the school through the general visitor process. The district has implemented visitor management systems at each building in the district.  These systems will do basic screenings for anyone coming into the building.

Please email volunteer@smsd.org or call Katie Hendrickson at (913) 993-6411 with questions or to receive more information.
