As per the VSSAA and VSB policies; all community coaches (including assistants) and volunteers working with school-aged children are required to submit a criminal record check.  Criminal record checks can be done through the VPD (if residing in Vancouver) or the RCMP (if residing outside Vancouver).  A letter accompanying the request is required from the school to verify the record check is for the purposes of volunteering for the school; this letter can be obtained from the school’s Athletic Director.

VPD Police Information Check (for residents of Vancouver)
(please contact the Athletic Director or School Administrator for a Volunteer Verification Letter)

(for residents outside Vancouver)

If Early Dismissals from regular class time are required, Teacher Coaches/Sponsors are to communicate to staff :
–  a list of student names
–  the destination school
–  the date of the early dismissal
–  the time of the early dismissal needed
wherever possible this should be done at least two full school days in advance so that teachers have appropriate notice.
(This is the preferred/recommended procedure over filling out individual yellow administrative slips, which can be altered or lost)
