Superintendent's Message

Student Resource Officers in Gilford Schools
Starting on Monday, April 10, 2023 we will have two Student Resource Officers (SRO's) assigned to the Gilford schools.  

Officer Arsenault will continue to be present on the three campuses and Officer Raxter is returning to assume her responsibilities as an SRO in the Gilford schools.  It is my understanding that the two SRO's will be in place through the end of the school year and hopefully for the 2023-2024 school year.

I feel the Gilford School District is very fortunate to have such a collaborative relationship with the Gilford Police Department and this news is really positive for the continued safety of all learners and staff.  If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out.

Fingerprinting for Volunteers and Chaperones

The Gilford School District welcomes volunteers in our schools.

A fingerprint background check is required in all Gilford schools for individuals, volunteers and chaperones engaged in the following activities:

  • classroom volunteers

  • chaperones on field trips

  • assisting at school activities such as dances, plays and concerts

  • volunteer coach

Once a thorough background investigation and criminal records check is complete with no disqualifying records and the volunteer has completed orientation, the volunteer will be issued an identification badge to be worn every time the volunteer works in the school.  

Fingerprint clinics are scheduled at the SAU office located at 2 Belknap Mountain Road.  A photo ID is required for identification.  

The process takes approximately 30 minutes. A photo will be taken for the ID badge.


Anyone who volunteers in the Gilford School District must complete an annual Volunteer Affidavit and Confidentiality Agreement.  

Volunteers who have already been issued an ID badge and would like a new badge for the 2023-2024 school year need to complete the Volunteer Affidavit and Confidentiality Agreement and submit to the SAU office. Every four years volunteers will need to go through the background investigation and criminal records check at the SAU office.

Volunteer Affidavit

Confidentiality Agreement

The form can be printed, completed and submitted to the SAU.  Forms can be emailed to [email protected]

Gilford School District policies JFABD (Admission of Homeless Students), ACAC (Title IX Sexual Harassment) and JICK (Bullying and Cyberbullying) must be reviewed annually by all volunteers.  Click here to review the policies.
