Background checks are part of the process
School employees each undergo a background check before being authorized to work in schools. Each volunteer candidate's information is also run through a Washington State Patrol background check. Once that check is cleared, schools or departments will contact you about the volunteer opportunities that interest you most.
Once you are cleared, your volunteer application is valid for three years.
Volunteer training is done onsite by a teacher or volunteer coordinator
Most volunteers are interested with helping in their student's classroom and have already contacted the teacher. However, if you are a community member wanting to volunteer, then contact the volunteer coordinator at the school where you want to volunteer. They will show you the school and explain what is expected of you as a volunteer. This is also your chance to ask questions and to learn how your skills can best be put to use. The district Volunteer Handbook is available online, or at your school. Reviewing and understanding the handbook is a requirement of the application process. The handbook includes a volunteer checklist that a staff person at your school can help you complete.
To learn the specifics about opportunities at a certain school, contact the school's volunteer coordinator.
