CPS Volunteer Directions
CPS has a protocol for anyone in the building speaking to or engaging with students. In order to be in the classroom, be a chaperone for a day trip within the city of Chicago, speak to a class, tutor, mentor, et cetera, you must fill out a Level II volunteer form through CPS.
For anyone wishing to be a volunteer coach or support any sports, chaperone students on an overnight trip or trip outside of the city they must fill out paperwork and follow steps to become a Level I volunteer. You will need to have to complete a background check and a TB test as a part of Level I volunteer protocol.
