Security Policies for Volunteers


To ensure the safety and well being of the students of St. Philip and St. Augustine Catholic Academy, all volunteers and coordinators must complete the Safe Environment paperwork and training as stipulated by the Diocesan security requirements. In addition, all persons volunteering at St. Philip and St. Augustine Catholic Academy are required to have clearance from an individual security background check prior to volunteering in any capacity at St. Philip and St. Augustine Catholic Academy. No person may volunteer in any capacity unless and until they have been notified by the St. Philip and St. Augustine Catholic Academy School Office of clearance through this procedure. 

All persons volunteering at St. Philip and St. Augustine Catholic Academy must have documented proof of their completion of a Diocesan approved Safe Environment training class annually. Volunteers who have previously completed the Safe Environment requirements must take an online refresher course annually in order to volunteer.
