Our thanks goes out to the entire Roseville Area community for the steadfast support of our teachers, staff, students, and families. Roseville Area Schools' legacy of excellence continues because of that community backing.
The Roseville Area Schools Foundation supports equity and educational excellence within Roseville Area Schools by awarding grants to teachers and supporting programs from funds raised annually by the foundation. The foundation's focus areas are centered around eliminating opportunity gaps, college and career readiness, and social-emotional learning.
Teachers report back that helping them to access up-to-date resources and approaches in their classrooms greatly enriches students’ learning experiences, heightens their engagement in the material, and deepens their understanding of concepts.
The foundation seeks contributions from individuals, foundations, area businesses, and corporations.

VOLUNTEER BACKGROUND CHECKS
To ensure the safety of our students, we require criminal background checks on the following:
Any volunteer who accompanies students off campus (e.g., chaperones for field trips)
- Any volunteer who is responsible for working with students on campus, but not under the supervision of a licensed teacher
If in doubt, complete a background check.
Volunteer background checks need to be done every year. To inquire whether you already have a cleared volunteer background check on file, please contact Human Resources: email@example.com or 651-635-1600.

If there are any concerns regarding the background check results, Human Resources will contact that individual directly within 24-48 hours after receiving the results. If you are not contacted within 48 hours after submitting the background check form, you are clear to volunteer.
Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to maintain a safe and secure educational environment for our students.
