• Volunteer

    The Board of Education recognizes that certain programs and activities can be enhanced through the use of volunteers who have particular knowledge or skills that will be helpful to members of the professional staff responsible for the conduct of those programs and activities. While volunteers are valuable to the district, volunteering is a privilege.

    Any individual who volunteers to work in the schools or on any school-sponsored activity or has access to students shall submit to a criminal history records check, prior to being allowed to participate in any activity or program and again periodically as required by the district.

    To become a volunteer during a school-related activity, please contact the applicable building secretary at least two weeks in advance of volunteering.

    Volunteers shall agree to abide by all Board policies and District guidelines, adhere to the directives provided at the building level while on duty as a volunteer, and be responsible for maintaining confidentiality regarding information seen or heard while volunteering.

    Volunteers will be covered under the District's liability policy, but the District cannot provide any type of health insurance to cover illness or accident incurred while serving as a volunteer, nor is the person eligible for workers' compensation.

Staff Recruitment and Hiring

  • The School District of Marshfield seeks to recruit, employ, promote, and retain as employees those persons best qualified to fulfill the needs of the students of the school district.

Hiring of Substitutes

  • The Board of Education recognizes the need to procure the services of long call and short call substitutes in order to continue the operation of the schools as a result of the absence of regular personnel.

    Section 504/ADA Prohibition against Disability Discrimination in Employment
    The Board of Education prohibits discrimination against any employee or applicant based upon his/her disability. As such, the Board will not engage in employment practices or adopt policies that discriminate on the basis of disability, or otherwise discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities in regard to job application procedures, the hiring, advancement or discharge of employees, employee compensation, job training, or other terms, conditions and privileges of employment. The Board further will not limit, segregate or classify applicants or employees in any way that adversely affects their opportunities or status because of disability. Additionally, the Board will not participate in any contractual or other relationships that have the effect of subjecting qualified individuals with disabilities who are applicants or employees to discrimination on the basis of disability.
    The Board will provide a reasonable accommodation to a qualified individual who has an actual disability or who has a record of a disability, unless the accommodation would impose an undue hardship on the operation of the District’s program and/or activities. A reasonable accommodation is not required for an individual who is merely regarded as having a disability.
