Lending a Helping Hand

Whether you find yourself with free time on your hands, a desire to spend time with young minds, or welcome the opportunity to help others, we welcome volunteers to aid our classrooms and schools throughout the district.

The Johnston Community School District uses the Background Investigation Bureau (BIB) system to screen volunteers for different roles within our schools. For example, some volunteers are asked to work with students on academic skills, while other volunteers are needed to assist with special events or large school functions. Regardless of the role, we want to ensure the safety of our students and staff, thus we have contracted with BIB to conduct high quality background checks on our potential volunteers using their Secure Volunteer technology.

Secure Volunteer is an easy to use online system created to help school systems manage volunteer screening. Use the secure online system to request your background check with just a few steps. Once your background check is complete, we will review and notify you by email when you have been approved. You will also receive a Secure Volunteer ID card to verify your background screen has been completed. It takes less than five minutes to complete!

Follow the link below to sign up with BIB and begin volunteering in the Johnston Community School District! Questions can be directed to our HR department at 515-278-0470.
