Volunteers make a difference in our schools! Before you volunteer in a classroom or attend a field trip, you must complete a DCPS Volunteer Application Form, which authorizes a local background check. Click HERE to download that form. The completed form will need to be turned in to your child's school. Please allow three weeks for us to receive your local background check. Once you have been approved to be a volunteer, you may check with your child's schools for information about opportunities to volunteer.
NOTE: The DCPS district pays $10 for each volunteer background check. We value our volunteers! Volunteer applicants may wish to donate $10 to cover this cost. This is optional. Thank you for your consideration - and for your willingness to support our students and schools through your volunteer service!
