PARENTS, SVA thanks you for your interest in volunteering! Whether it’s on the campus or field trips, we greatly appreciate parents getting involved. To best facilitate your interest in volunteering please complete the School Volunteer Form by clicking here.
VOLUNTEERS: In order to ensure the utmost safety for our students, every volunteer (including parents) at Spring Valley Academy (and your local Seventh-day Adventist church, if applicable) must now complete the Verified Volunteers online training at https://www.ncsrisk.org/adventist/index.cfm? Select First Time Registrant and the online form will be self-explanatory from there. This is a two-part program. The first part raises the awareness of the mistreatment of the vulnerable and will take about 45 minutes to an hour to complete, but it can be done in segments. The second part will ask you questions so a background check can be run. This may be carried out by a New Mexico background check service or a similar company. It is a necessary step as we need to ensure that our volunteers are of good character. After the two parts are completed, a certificate of completion should be printed and submitted to the front office. This background check is good for three years.
In addition, each parent and/or volunteer must fill out a School Volunteer/Driver Application Form if you plan to volunteer to drive students. The form below will ask you to provide a copy of your driver’s license and proof of insurance with attached declaration page of your policy (minimum of $100,000/$300,000 liability) that can be submitted to the front office or faxed to 937-433-0914. These must be completed each year.
This is a mandate from the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Thank you once again for your involvement and participation!
