Madison provides many opportunities for parents to be involved. Volunteers are an essential part of our school community.
Parents can sign up with Kris Kneeland in the main office. Parents can be involved in the Foundation of James Madison High School, the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA), parent booster clubs (athletics, cheer, music, drama or JROTC), or assist in the school office. Parents can volunteer at a regularly scheduled time, assist with field trips or special events, or offer to complete a task at home.
Parent and community volunteers must complete an application and be cleared of tuberculosis (TB) before volunteering on our campus. According to state law, all staff and volunteers must have clearance from tuberculosis on record. The clearance is good for four years.
Our school district does not provide TB tests and clearances. Volunteers must secure this clearance on their own and provide documentation to the main office. Tests must be read in 48-72 hours. A positive test requires medical follow up; a positive test does not indicate TB disease, but only that you have been exposed to TB at some time.
TB test reports must include: date administered, date read, signature of provider, and mm reading.
Parent and community volunteers must sign in at the office and receive a volunteer or visitor badge. All volunteers must sign out each day in the main office.
To protect the confidentiality of our students, the following jobs are not given to volunteers:
- Jobs that require access to office and student records.
- Jobs that reveal information about student progress.
- Jobs that take students away from the supervision of a teacher.
