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 publish (ONLY JO Teaching Staff are able to do this):
–  a list of student names
–  the destination school
–  the date of the early dismissal
–  the time of the early dismissal needed
in the JO STAFF/STUDENT BULLETIN; 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)
