Parents, SVA thanks you for your interest in volunteering! Whether it’s on the campus or field trips, we greatly appreciate parents getting involved.

In order to ensure the utmost safety for our students, every parent volunteer at Spring Valley Academy (and your local Seventh-day Adventist church, if applicable) must now complete the Shield the Vulnerable online form at www.shieldthevulnerable.org. Select First Time User and the online form will be self-explanatory from there. This is a two-part program. The first part raises the awareness of the mistreatment of the vulnerable and will take about 1-1.5 hours to complete, but it can be done in segments. The second part will ask you questions so a background check can be run.  A certificate of completion should be printed and submitted to the front office.  This background check takes approximately two weeks to process and is good for three years.

In addition, each parent must fill out a Volunteer and Driver Form if you plan to volunteer and/or drive students. The form below will ask you to provide a copy of your driver’s license and proof of insurance with attached declaration page of your policy (minimum of $100,000/$300,000 liability) that can be submitted to the front office or faxed to 937-433-0914. These must be completed each year.

This is a mandate from the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Thank you once again for your involvement and participation!
