We welcome and appreciate school volunteers to partner with us in education!  It is required by all Wake County Public Schools that volunteers complete a yearly background check prior to time spent with students.  Background checks must be completed on a school computer and there are computer stations available in the AB Combs Front Office and in the Media Center. Applicants will be notified by email once their application has been approved. The last day to sign up to volunteer for the 2017-18 school year is October 31, 2017.
