Volunteer Opportunities

If you would like to volunteer in one of our schools, an updated Volunteers In Schools application is required each year. Please follow the link to the google document to sign up. You should also have the attachment below completed.

This is required in order to give us your most up-to-date contact information and availability, as well as your child's grade level, school, and classroom teacher/learning center for the current school year.

If you would like to volunteer you must submit an Authorization Form (document is available for download by clicking here) which allows the district to conduct a background check. RI law now requires background checks each year. Please complete the form, include a copy of your Driver's License, a check for $5.00 made payable to BCI (cash is not accepted), and return it to your child's school.
