FAQ and Information


Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at one of our schools! Community involvement and engagement at all levels of schooling have been shown to have significant short and long term benefits for both students and volunteers.

Please take note, the processing of applications takes up to 10 business days - from when it was received - please allow for this time when filling out the form. The school will be notified of your approval/denial and they will inform you. If you have any questions on a pending application, or when you can volunteer, please contact the school that you were wishing to volunteer at.

If you have already filled out a Volunteer Form for this school year ( July 1 - June 30 ), you DO NOT need to fill one out again. One approval from any school will work at every school in the district unless otherwise noted on final application. If you are unsure, please contact your child's teacher or building secretary.

You must first be assigned to a club, field trip or a teacher/ time to volunteer BEFORE filling out this application.                

Only fill out this application if a teacher has

  • requested you to be a classroom volunteer
  • chaperone a field trip
  • dental treatments
  • PTA / PTO members

If you have NOT been requested for a specific date or time, please wait to fill out the application until you are requested. 

Clicking No, I have not been assigned will prevent your application from being processed.
