VOLUNTEER APPLICATION INFORMATION

When we moved from the paper volunteer application to an online system with HRMplus two years ago, June 30, 2021 was designated as the expiration date for approved volunteer applications.


As a result, all volunteers will need to update their application through HRMplus (complete interest and required uploads in My Checklist); this will generate a new Washington State Patrol background check.


The Mount Vernon School District will be sending out a Blackboard Connect message to all families by mid-August regarding the requirement to update their application.


Thank you!
