VOLUNTEERS

Volunteers serve a very important role at St. Francis Xavier School.  As a volunteer, you help to support educational programming and experiences for our students.  We have several ways for you to volunteer at SFX.

Volunteers are required to complete a Virtus training, here are the volunteer Virtus requirements.

All employees and volunteers who have contact with students undergo thorough screening, including background checks through the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation & Identification (BCI&I). For complete information on screening policies, see the revised Policy for the Safety of Children in Matters of Sexual Abuse, section 1.2 (p. 3).

In an effort to respect our students’ privacy, we request all volunteers to limit their cell phone usage during their volunteer time. This will include all taking photos, texting, or calling our students’ parents/families. We thank you for understanding and the gift of your time.
