Castle Country Academics welcomes and encourages parents to take an active role in their child’s educational experiences.  As the child witnesses the value his/her parent places on education, the child will also positively value his/her academic experiences. 

 Parent volunteers and visitors may serve in any capacity for which they are qualified, but may not be alone with a group of children. (Division of Family and Children; 470IAC 3-4, 7-29)  All volunteers and visitors who are in the center over 8 hours a month will be required to apply for a National Criminal History (Division of Family and Children; 470 IAC 3-4.7-1)  on himself/herself,  a Physical and TB Skin Test, Drug Test and will be responsible for costs thereof.  (Approximately $100.00)  State Licensing Standards also require regular volunteers to get a Mantoux tuberculosis test annually.
