    Volunteer Information 

     At this time anyone who volunteers at anytime in the Unit 5 school district must undergo a background check.

    If you are new to the district or have never completed the background screening on-line application, you will need to email Mrs. Stevenson in our Benjamin office and she will send you the application link.  Once you have completed the on-line application, the results are sent to our district office.  Once reviewed, they will make you a new volunteer badge that will delivered to Benjamin. Please call me at (309) 557-4410 to check the status of your badge! Unfortunately I do not have time to contact individuals when badges arrive. Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Benjamin! We greatly appreciate the support of our families!

     If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Stevenson at the following e-mail address: stevenss@myunit5.org

    Thank you!
