Kuehnle Elementary Volunteering


Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Kuehnle Elementary!

There are two steps to becoming a volunteer at our school:

1.     Sign up into the CERVIS system

2.     Completing a criminal background check. 

Here is how to do both online:

1. Log on to www.kleinisd.net. 
2.  Click on "Departments" in the gray bar going across the page.   
3.  Under the Communications and Planning Department (first one), click on "Volunteers" 
4.  Click the "Volunteer Sign up" link on the left side of the page. 
5. Read all the information on the Sign up page prior to completing the two steps. 
6. Click the blue "Click Here" link. 
7. A new window will open to the CERVIS Volunteer management system where you will complete a volunteer profile.  Once you finish filling in the form, click "submit" 
8.  Go back to the original "Sign Me Up!" page, and click on the blue "criminal background check" link. 
9.  A new window will open.  At the bottom of the page, it will ask if you agree to the criminal/history background check.  Click "Fill in background information" to continue. 
10.  Fill in your information and make sure you initial the bottom to give your consent again. 
11.  Click "save", a "thank you" screen will appear, and you will receive an automated email telling you the background check was successfully submitted.   
12.  If you don't see the thank you screen, your background check did not successfully submit.   
13.  If you don't receive an automated email stating that your background check was successfully submitted, then your background check did not get successfully submitted.   
14. You are done once both have been successfully submitted.

Here is a list of positions and their descriptions we offer at Kuehnle. There is a form in the front office at the Welcome Center by the computer if are interested.  Please return the form to Jennifer Almaguer-Finberg in the front office.
