Volunteers can start signing up to complete the background check and orientation.  The following steps must be completed:



1.     Click on the link 


2.     There is a Create a Volunteer Account form on the front page.


3.     Volunteers will create a Voly account by entering the required information on the home page.  


4.     Once logged in, the volunteer will be taken straight to the volunteer application.


5.     The volunteer will need to complete the fields on the volunteer application, including the Consent for Background Check.  


6.     Once the volunteer hits Submit/Save, they will be taken straight to the Orientation Slides.  The volunteer will need to review each slide and click the check box at the end to acknowledge they have read it all.


7.     Volunteers can always go back to their application to see their status (for the background check).  An approved or denied email will be sent when the background check has been completed.


If there are questions or concerns, contact the school volunteer liaison where you will volunteer or email (Allow 48 hours for feedback on your request). Requests made on a Friday, will receive feedback on Tuesday before

5:00 pm.  Feedback will not be provided during district holidays.
