SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS

We know how critical volunteer service is to the overall success of many events, programs, and extracurricular activities that take place in our schools daily. At the same time, we are all committed to the safety and security of students, faculty, and staff. To that end, we must work within district procedures and best practices to ensure safety and optimize volunteer service in our schools.


As defined in our administrative procedure for School Volunteers, there are a variety of forms one may need to become a volunteer in one of our three volunteer levels. In recent weeks, we have collected all forms and the procedure document in one place on our website. Use the link below to access our administrative procedures or follow this breadcrumb trail.



Your volunteer service is important and appreciated. THANK YOU!
