Parent Volunteer Program

We have plenty of times where we could use some extra help around the school and in special activities.  Check through the following volunteer opportunities for the 2017-18 Academic School Year and contact Kaci Sintek (kaci_sintek@dpsk12.org) to sign up.  Please read the Parent Volunteer Background Check Process to see if you need to complete either of the two following forms:

Collaborative School Committee (CSC) Representative
The CSC serves to enhance student achievement and school climate through collaboration about the school’s budget, the direction of the Unified Improvement Plan, and other school processes.  Parent volunteers would need to attend monthly virtual meetings that primarily land on the evening (6pm-7:30pm) of the last Tuesday of each month.

Marketing Events
Our school is represented at multiple educational events throughout the year.  Parent volunteers would work at the Denver Online High School booth, hand out flyers, and talk to people about the school.

Graduation Organization/Set Up
Graduation will take place tentatively on the evening of Thursday, May 24th, 2018. Parent volunteers would help with decorating/setting up for the event, cleaning up, welcoming guests, handing out programs, etc.

Planning for Success
Planning for Success is a large college and career readiness event set for Saturday, February 24th, 2018 that helps students prepare for their options after high school graduation.  The event hosts guest motivational speakers to talk to students, guest speakers to talk to our parents/families about specialty topics, and multiple college representatives for our college fair. Parent volunteers would help set up/ clean up, welcome guests, introduce and thank speakers on stage, and help as needed with event activities.

Superintendent Parent Forum Representative
The Denver Public School District hosts a Superintendent Parent Forum roughly every other month.  Parent volunteer representatives would attend one of the events once a month and represent Denver Online High School there.  Parent volunteers get the chance to meet the superintendent, share their voice, and then report back to the school on any important information.

Field Trip Chaperone
The school hosts monthly free field trips. Parent volunteers would help chaperone the event and potentially give rides if comfortable doing so.

NHS Induction
The National Honor Society has an induction ceremony every year. The event will be held on September 20th, 2017 at 5:3opm. Parent volunteers would help set up/clean-up for the event, help serve food, welcome guests, and complete any other event needs.

Giving rides to testing/special events
There are multiple events where students may need rides to.  These may include rides to state testing sites, Planning for Success, volunteer activities, and more.  Parent volunteers would give rides to students to and/or from the event.

School Parties
We have a Winter Holiday Party tentatively planned for December 1st, 2017. Parent volunteers would help set up/take down for the event, help organize and/or lead event activities, and chaperone.

Child Care
We have a handful of students who are young parents.  It is difficult for them to complete their studies while simultaneously watching over a little kid.  Parent volunteers would work with these parents and babysit while students worked in the lab.
