Volunteer Services
Welcome to Volunteer Services!

Volunteers are essential partners in the success of our schools, and we truly appreciate their gifts of time and talent that fuel so many wonderful opportunities for our students.  Individuals from throughout our community serve in variety of volunteer positions, from tutors and mentors to classroom assistants, special project committees, and so much more!  

All volunteers must have a yearly application and background check on file with the Community Engagement office prior to service in our schools.  Clearance is on a one-year basis, and all volunteers must re-apply each school year.  The beginning of the school year is an excellent time to complete the process, so that you can be ready to volunteer in the schools or chaperone a field trip.  

ONLINE VOLUNTEER APPLICATION

Our online system for volunteer clearance includes a national criminal history and sex offender background check.  Paper applications are no longer accepted.  The online application requires an active email account and a valid social security number to enable a background check.  The volunteer system does not retain social security numbers once the background check is complete. 

 If your background check returns a finding, you will receive a report at the address you provide in the application, and the Community Engagement Coordinator will contact you for more information.

If you are approved, you will receive notice by email as well as an invitation to the volunteer portal where you will be able to track your hours and sign up for special events.

The online application may be accessed from your home computer at any time.  You also are welcome to contact ASD Community Engagement Coordinator Keiko McCracken for assistance with the process, including help for anyone without a home computer to complete the application.  

For more information, please contact Keiko McCracken, ASD Community Engagement Coordinator, at kmccracken@asd103.org or (360) 503-1208.
