VOLUNTEER requirements

St. Thomas More must provide a safe environment for children and youth. We hold ALL adults who work with minors to a code of conduct that is Christ-centered and professional. The Safe Environment Program implemented by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Baton Rouge requires us to evaluate the background of all paid personnel and volunteers whose duties include ongoing, unsupervised contact with minors.

The Diocese of Baton Rouge has adopted Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. Any one who wants to volunteer at St. Thomas More must be in compliance with this policy. ALL requirements must be met in order to volunteer.

The Diocese is still transitioning to a new system for volunteers to apply for Child Protection Certification. In the meantime, you may still follow these steps to become certified to volunteer at STM:

Accelerated Reader (AR)

The Accelerated Reader program allows students in grades 3rd-6th the opportunity to practice and enhance their reading skills including comprehension and speed. Students will be expected to earn points by reading books and taking a computerized test each nine weeks. Students meeting their required point goal for the nine-week period will earn alternate dress and admission to “spend” their points in our AR store. Students earning 500 points or more will become members of the 500 point club and receive a medal and recognition at a ceremony.

STAR Testing

STAR testing is part of the Accelerated Reading program used in many schools/districts across the United States to provide information about students’ reading abilities. The STAR test indicates the reading range in which the student has optimal comprehension without excessive frustration. The test will be administered five times per year (at the beginning of the year and at the end of each nine-week period), so we can track student progress.
