Volunteer Background Check Fee to Remain at $25 Through End of 2018

The Polk County School Board has decided that the fee to cover volunteers’ background checks, as well as their badge and handbook, will remain $25 through the end of the calendar year.

Polk County Public Schools will be using more extensive volunteer background checks as part of our security measures to protect students and staff. The district will incur an additional charge for the statewide and national background checks.

However, through the end of 2018, the cost to volunteers will remain $25. We are exploring other funding sources to help offset the cost of background screening for volunteers on an ongoing basis. More information will follow.

Welcome To Our Family!

Caldwell Elementary staff are committed to giving every child on a campus a powerful day of learning. We love to create engaging experiences for our students and you will regularly see our staff dressed in costumes, playing games, singing and snapping pictures with our students!

We believe in telling our story about the magical and powerful things happening on campus during the day. You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the positive things we are doing with our school family.

Our staff and students are each a member of a ‘house’. Each house brings a different strength to create ONE SCHOOL. During the year, each house can earn points for their house and we recognize a house leader at the end of each 9 weeks.
