Make a Difference - Become a School Volunteer


The Osceola School District's OASIS School Volunteer Program provides the opportunity for parents, businesses, and the community to enrich the education of students. Volunteers are a vital part of the educational system in our county, and are indeed making a difference for students. To ensure safe schools for our students, the Osceola School District conducts both local and national criminal history background checks at no cost to the applicant. These background checks help identify individuals with criminal offenses which may disqualify them from serving as an OASIS school volunteer. The application process may take up to three weeks to complete.

How to Apply


Apply to be an OASIS School Volunteer All school volunteers must renew their volunteer application every school year. If you did not volunteer last school year, you are considered a new volunteer. Just be sure to click OSCEOLA SCIENCE CHARTER!
