Background Check & Confidentiality Acknowledgment
All volunteers are required to sign a confidentiality acknowledgment, plus an informed consent form that grants permission for the district to conduct a criminal background check. You may download these forms using the links below. You can also receive a copy from the district staff member or program you plan to volunteer with. Please return completed forms to the staff member or program for which you will volunteer.

Online Volunteer Training
Only volunteers for afterschool/out-of-school time programs need to complete online volunteer training.
Our volunteer training mini-course covers the basics of volunteering with Northfield students. The Schoology-based course includes a brief volunteer questionnaire, three short training videos and three short quizzes. Completing the entire training should take less than 30 minutes. You may start and stop as you wish; just be sure you know where you left off.
All volunteers are expected to have completed the entire training before their third session of volunteering in our schools. Instructions for how to get started are listed below.
