Volunteer Statement of Confidentiality
Our school is a vital part of the community. Respecting one’s privacy and confidentiality is very
Each student with whom you work has the right to expect that nothing that happens to
or about him or her will be repeated to anyone other than authorized school
department employees, as designated by the administrators at your school. Even when
discussing a student with those who are directly involved in a student’s education,
such as a teacher, principal, or guidance counselor, you may not share otherwise
confidential information with them unless it is relevant to the student’s educational
growth, safety, or well-being.
You may not share information about a student even with others who are genuinely
interested in the student’s welfare, such as social workers, scout leaders, clergy, or
nurses/physicians (a grave medical emergency, in which confidential information
may be necessary for a student’s care, is the only exception). Thus, you must refer all
such questions to the school employees so authorized and indicated to you, typically
the student’s teacher or principal.
Parents, friends, or community members may, in good faith, ask you questions about
a student’s problems or progress. Again, you must refer all such questions to the
authorized school employees. You may not share information about a student, even
with members of your own family or his/her family.
Volunteer Liability and Indemnification
A volunteer shall at all times indemnify and hold harmless Anamosa Community Schools
and its officers, agents and employees from any and all claims, damages and expenses arising
out of injuries to persons or damage to property which resulted from any omissions or
negligent acts of the volunteer.
I understand and agree that I will not disclose such confidential information except to
school employees that have a need to know.
