Volunteers at Bray
CH Bray is very fortunate to have many parent, guardian and community volunteers who add greatly to our community.
If you are a returning volunteer and you police check is three years (2014) or older, it is time to get a new one. If it is newer (2015-2017), you will need to complete an Offence Declaration. This must be done annually. Links to get an online Police Check or to download a copy of the Offence Declaration can be found on our ‘Documents’ page. Please complete these as soon as possible.
There are changes to the Volunteer Driver policy at the HWDSB (See below for excerpt from policy). If you are going to act as a volunteer driver, you will have to complete the Educational Excursion Volunteer Driver Form, which can be found in the ‘Documents’ page. In addition, you will have to show or provide a copy of your driver’s license and proof of insurance. In addition, any pick-up or drop-off location must be arranged in writing by the teacher in charge before the event. Last minute destination changes are not allowed.
7.0 Volunteer Drivers
7.1 Volunteer drivers are any persons authorized by the Principal, who have agreed to transport students while driving their own or another licensed automobile that meets the requirements of the
Board outlined on the Educational Excursion Volunteer Driver Form (Appendix D). Volunteer drivers must be 18 years of age or older, hold a minimum of a valid Ontario Class G License and meet HWDSB’s required insurance amount. The driver/owner must complete the Educational Excursion Volunteer Driver Form and submit it to the teacher for Principal approval. Principals are expected to verify the volunteer’s valid Ontario Class G License and proof of insurance. Please note that Volunteer drivers are not covered under the Boards Fleet Automobile Insurance. In the event of an incident, Volunteer drivers are required to contact their own insurance provider to seek coverage.
7.2 It is the expectation that the initial “pick up” location and final “drop off” locations are clearly communicated in advance to students, parents/guardians and Volunteer drivers. These locations must be adhered to unless otherwise agreed to, in advance, in writing, by parents/guardians.
