DaVinci Academy recognizes and appreciates that families want to be actively involved in the education of their children. In addition, research shows that students whose parents are involved in their school perform better academically and socially. As a result, parents are expected to be involved and volunteer at DaVinci Academy at least 20 hours per school year (10 hours per school year for single parent families).
Purpose to Having Volunteers:
To enrich and enhance students’ learning
To enable teachers to offer more individual attention to their students
To free other school personnel to meet the needs of students more effectively by providing volunteer assistance
To strengthen the partnership between families, community and the school
To promote the importance of volunteerism to our student population
HelpCounter, our volunteer tracking software, is available through a kiosk at the front desk during normal business hours. You can also access the system at home to enter those volunteer hours that you may be putting in outside of school, update your contact information as well as your volunteer interest. To do this, please click the link below. If your e-mail address is not in the HelpCounter system, please contact Lee Swearingen at firstname.lastname@example.org or add your own profile using the kiosk at the front desk.

Background Screenings - To ensure the safety of our students and staff, every volunteer is required to have a current background check on file with DaVinci Academy. If you do not have a background check on file, please obtain the required form from the front office or select the link to the left to print immediately. Volunteers are asked to pay a $10 processing fee for each background check submitted. Checks should be made payable to DaVinci Academy. Return all forms and payments to the main office (Attn: Volunteer Coordinator).
(Do not let the processing fee keep you from volunteering at school. If you cannot afford the fee at this time, please contact Mrs. Swearingen to make alternative arrangements.)
