Please bring your background check along with your driver’s license to LCS Central Office located at 160 Miller Road, Lebanon, Ohio.  You will be asked to sign the LCS Board Policy for Volunteers during this visit.

STEP THREE: BOARD APPROVAL:

  • ALL Volunteers must be Board Approved prior to Volunteering.

  • Your name will appear on the next scheduled LCS Board Agenda to be approved as a Lebanon City Schools volunteer.

  • The Lebanon City School Board Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. You must have completed all steps at least 10 days prior to the upcoming Board Meeting to be Board Approved. You do NOT have to be present at the Board Meeting to be Board Approved.

  • ID Badges will be issued only after the steps above have been completed and you have been Board Approved.

  • These 3 steps must be repeated every 5 years.

STEP FOUR: PICK UP YOUR VOLUNTEER BADGE:

  • ID Badges will be available for you to pick up the day after the LCS Board Meeting at Central Office.

  • All badges that have not been picked up by the end of the school year will be discarded. If a replacement badge is requested then it is the badge holders responsibility to pay for the cost of the replacement.

  • If you have lost your badge and/or need a replacement, you will be charged for the replacement at a District determined cost. Must be paid with exact change - cash only.  Payment must be received prior to duplicate badge being made.
