Please note, every chaperone or volunteer must have an active approved CORI. It is easy to complete your CORI – simply visit any of the school offices in the district with your drivers license or government ID, and complete the form. It can take anywhere from 5 to 10 days for the CORI to be confirmed, and until then, you will not be able to volunteer in a role interacting with the students, so please act quickly.

Please ensure you sign up with your legal name, as all names are checked against the Master Volunteer list & CORI list. This will help us complete the check quicker.

Thank you so much for your help!

Time to renew your CORI

REMINDER – All CORI forms must be renewed this year!

This is a reminder that everyone will need to have a new CORI Form completed this year.

If you had your form updated after January 1st 2018, then your form is good for the new 3 year period. All others need to be updated for the new 3 year cycle- no exceptions.

The absolute BEST TIME to get your CORI updated is NOW before school is in summer recess.

Simply stop by the AB High School front office – open from ~7 am to ~4 pm (or any other school in the AB School district) with a government issued Photo Identification document such as drivers’ license, passport, state Identification, etc. and complete the Form

CORI’s do not transfer between entities such as your church, and your employment, to the AB school district however the CORI for ABFOM is good across the entire AB School district.

We will need volunteers for Band & Chorus Camp including new freshmen parents, so do not delay. During the summer, the office has previously been open from ~7 am to 2 pm.

New Graduates – if you are 18, and you are thinking to help volunteer at Band Camp, please complete the CORI form now as well. We love to have our Student Volunteers but we must follow the school, state and Federal laws.
