Chaperoning the Band
We are in need of chaperones for away football games and competition trips. We take six buses of students and we need two chaperones on each bus. There are five football games and four competitions each season. We appreciate any time you are able to give to work one or more of these trips.
Chaperones are an important part of our band program. We:
Take attendance when loading and unloading students
Monitoring student behavior on the bus and during third quarter
Assist with with uniform issues
Help distribute food to students on longer trips
In order for adults to serve as chaperones, the Brunswick City School District (BCSD) requires all individuals to have a background check, including being fingerprinted. All information for becoming an approved BCSD volunteer can be found here: Volunteer/Background Check Information.
There is a cost for the fingerprinting and background check process, which currently ranges between $25-$48, depending on which checks need to be run on your behalf (details can be found in the above mentioned form)
The process is done at the BCSD Board office and appointments must be scheduled in advance. Use this link to access the BCSD calendar to schedule an appointment
Below are the dates of all travel events for this season. Getting your background check does not mean you have to chaperone every trip. You can signup for only those trips which you are available.
