While the expectation is that every parent or guardian serves and engages in a variety of school happenings, West Hills does not require a specific number of volunteer hours. Though volunteer hours are not a requirement, it is an expectation that all parents give back to the school through service, volunteerism and participation. Our check-in system does track volunteer hours since that information is helpful in pursuing grants.
In order to participate as a volunteer, every adult needs to fill out a background check and complete an Adult-to-Student Contact Policy Form. Once a background check is complete, they will be enrolled in our HelpCounter system. HelpCounter is essential matching opportunities to the role the volunteer that wants to serve in.
