We urge members of the community to get involved in our school to help us better serve all of our students. Once thought to be the province of parents, our school is eager to involve the entire community including individuals, senior citizens, college students, businesses, churches and synagogues, community groups and others in support of education.
Volunteers for academic achievement
Many schools utilize volunteers to help students improve their reading, writing and math skills. A designated school volunteer coordinator will match a student that needs additional help in one or more areas with a trained volunteer. Having time to volunteer during the school day can be essential. However, special consideration may be provided if there is an additional opportunity to work with the student before or after school.
Volunteers who work individually with children may participate in two hours of training through Communities in Schools of Wake County.
Other opportunities to participate
People who want to help children will find many ways to volunteer in the schools. They help in the classroom, on the practice field, in the office, in the library or in the computer lab. Schools need adults to help personalize learning for students and help children see where today's classroom lessons apply in the community.
You can register to volunteer online. To register, please visit your child's school during school hours. Bring identification with you. All volunteers will need to register and pass a criminal background check. Website registration from home is not possible for security reasons.
Volunteers play an important role in our school district. We are grateful to parents and community members who contribute their time and talents to supporting our students.
Per WCPSS Board Policy 5015: School Volunteers, the school board encourages principals to develop and implement plans and procedures for utilizing school volunteers, including those who wish to volunteer in a virtual capacity. Principals continue to have discretion to determine whether volunteers are needed and are encouraged to use volunteers when needed.
All volunteers must pass criminal history and sexual offender registry checks and comply with WCPSS Board policy 5020: Visitors to the School.
