We have a wonderful team of employees working with our students, but it takes many volunteers to help us make all of the extra magic happen. If you enjoy working with children and would like to volunteer in a classroom or  chaperone field trips, we need you!

As part of our security procedures, all Plainfield Schools employees and volunteers must complete, and pass, a background check. We use Safe Visitor Solutions to manage this process for us. It's simple, quick, and affordable.

There are many adults who work closely with students, including volunteers who chaperone overnight trips or serve as lay leaders and coaches, outside therapists who work with students in the school setting, court-appointed guardian ad litems, and some others. These individuals are required to complete what is known as the expanded background check, which includes a search for criminal activity. This search costs $35 per state of residence and the fee is the responsibility of the volunteer. To complete the criminal (expanded) background check, click here:
