• Thank you for volunteering here at Crofton Meadows Elementary! We value your willingness to offer your time and talent to enrich the education of our students and support our staff. 

    Below is a brief list of steps we require that all volunteers take to guarantee the safety of our students and ensure that you have a good experience as a volunteer. 

    Attend a volunteer orientation at CMES. Sign this Volunteer Compact verifying that you have completed all the steps to volunteer at CMES.

    Watch the sexual harassment and child abuse training module and complete a verification form which is kept on file at the school.

    Complete a commercial background check at https://www.aacps.org/chaperone (scroll to the bottom of the page). Successful completion of a commercial background check is required before any person has access to students, either on or off school property. There is no cost to the volunteer.

    Know what level of background check is required.  The following groups of individuals must complete a fingerprint-supported background check. The cost of fingerprinting is $63.00 (cash or card) and it includes the commercial background check.  Appointments can be made by calling the Fingerprint Office at 410-222-5045 or by email aacpsfingerprinting@gmail.com.
