Become a Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in becoming a School Volunteer! Each year, countless volunteers from the community give of their time and talents to assist in our schools. Volunteers can serve in many capacities, including answering phones, making copies for teachers, serving as tutors, serving as testing proctors, and much more! 


Beginning the 2023-2024 school year, individuals will apply to become school volunteers through the new VOLY Volunteer System. The all-in-one solution will allow the district to process volunteer applications, while at the same time giving volunteers easier access to find and sign up for volunteer opportunities at our schools throughout the academic year.
