Volunteer Information


Kohl warmly welcomes parent and community volunteers!

Volunteers sign a confidentiality agreement each year prior to working in the school and are required to complete a background check. This includes chaperones for field trips. We want to make sure you are aware that the background check process takes some time, so plan ahead if you are interested in volunteering.

Please review the very important information located on BVSD’s Volunteer website and contact the Kohl Office if you have questions. Opportunities to volunteer at Kohl are listed at HelpAtSchools and may also be shared directly by teachers. 

Volunteering at BVSD is easy.

he District is requiring CBI Fingerprints as described below: If parents go on a field trip and will not always be under line-of-sight of a BVSD employee, those parents need to pass the CBI fingerprint check. In practice, this means that if you would like to serve as a chaperone on a field trip you will need to complete the fingerprint process. 

CBI fingerprint checks are completed through a third party vendor, are paid for by the volunteer/partner, and the volunteer must sign a BVSD volunteer agreement (Spanish).  Here's the link to the BVSD Volunteer / Visitor FAQ.

The cost of fingerprinting is $44.00 and must be completed annually (fingerprints are good for one calendar year). If you have questions or need assistance in completing the fingerprint process, Berenice Ramirez, Executive Assistant for Strategic Partnerships is available to help. She can be reached by phone (720-561-5167) or by email (berenice.ramirez@bvsd.org).

Kohl’s Office Manager Sheryl Vanwey is also available to provide support (720-561-8604, sheryl.vanwey@bvsd.org).

Please note, there is a $24.99 background fee due at the time of submission. Once you have received email confirmation that your application has been approved, you are welcome to begin volunteering.  Please allow up to 48 hours, upon submission, for approval notification.  Approved background screenings are valid for 12 months, at which time they will need to be renewed.
