Volunteer At Bowman

If you have a student at Bowman and would like to volunteer in the classroom, you must complete a Criminal Record Check per the Lebanon City Board Policy. The Volunteer Flyer provides step-by-step instructions on how to obtain approval to volunteer in your child's classroom and is available through this link:

The Central Office is open Monday-Friday from 8:00am-4:00pm. Once your background check is complete, please call Pat Tipton for an appointment at (513)934-5770.

Safe School Hotline

The Board of Education is committed to providing a safe, positive, productive and nurturing educational environment for all of its students.  The Board encourages the promotion of positive interpersonal relationships between members of the school community.

Although we encourage open communication between students and staff, we also understand some students may feel more comfortable reporting a concern anonymously.  For this reason, we offer a SAFE SCHOOL HOTLINE at 513-934-1167.  

This phone number allows a student or parent to report a concern.  This line is checked daily for messages.
