Important – New Volunteer System for 2016/2017 School year
As you may be aware, the Beaverton School District has transitioned to a new Volunteer Management System: MyVolunteerPage.com (mVP). The change is driven by the need for enhanced management of background checks across the Beaverton School District (BSD). The new software will improve security within the district by incorporating volunteer background checks into its volunteer application process.
HelpCounter will no longer be used starting the 2016/2017 school year.
This will require all volunteers and visitors in the Beaverton School District, to apply for a profile in mVP. EVERYONE who would like to volunteer will need to do a new background check as part of this new system, regardless if you’ve done one recently.
To sign up – Go to the following link and follow the steps to create a new user account for MyVolunteerPage.com
- Make sure to create a username you can remember. You will need to enter your username and password every time you log into the system and every time you log in at school.
- Fill out the About You Section with the required fields.
- Please make sure to list Jacob Wismer as your school and add your child’s grade into your information. This will ensure you get all the class specific info/mailings as well as the schoolwide information
- Once your background check is complete, you will receive an email with your approval status and your volunteer profile at myvolunteerpage.com will be active. Each approved volunteer will have their own profile and need to login individually to sign up for volunteer opportunities. IMPORTANT: Make your username easy to remember. If it makes things simpler, you can use your email address as a username. The website has a function for resetting passwords by email, but there isn’t an online function to help with a forgotten username.
A key reason we are asking all parents/volunteers to set up profiles early is to avoid a rush and mitigate any confusion at the start of the 2016/2017 school year. Since every person who enters Jacob Wismer School is required to have a MyVolunteer approved profile before they volunteer at an event, we would like to get everyone set up early. We appreciate all that our parents and volunteers do for Jacob Wismer and hope to make this transition as seamless as possible.
