Chaperone Training

As we start gearing up for the start of marching band season, one important volunteer opportunity is being a CHAPERONE for our kids.  Chaperones are needed wherever our marching band goes -- home football games, selected away football games, band competitions, and other performances.  To get a full understanding of this volunteer position, read the Chaperone Handbook linked below.
If you are interested in becoming a chaperone, a background check is required in accordance with Mason City Schools policy.  The cost of a background check is $50.00 and is good for five years.  That means that if you've had a background check in the past five years, another one is not necessary at this time.  The background check will allow you to chaperone any non-overnight event.

To Complete the Background Check: 
Where: HR office at the Central Administration Building
When: Monday - Friday from 7:30 - 4:00, no appointment necessary. If you have questions, you can contact Jane Johnson ( 
Cost: $50.00 cash or check made out to Mason City Schools
Bring: Drivers License and payment

If you have any questions, please contact the current Chaperone Committee Chair at
