• Attention All Volunteers...

    In order to better organize volunteers and to improve student safety, Wake County Public Schools is requiring all volunteers to register at a Wake County School. There will be computers available during the school day in the media center to allow volunteers to register.

    All parents and visitors MUST check in at the front office and obtain a visitors badge before walking around the campus or entering buildings. Visitors should expect to show proper picture identification when signing in or checking out their children. Please make sure your name and signature is complete on the back of your child’s locator card. Children cannot be released to an adult NOT listed on the Locator card. Locator cards go home the first week of school and need to return to the main office immediately. Should an emergency arise, this is the first source we use to contact parents.

    PTA members must wear their PTA identification badges and check in at the front office.

  • We have numerous community partners who volunteer in our schools each day, working one-on-one with students to help them reach success. Volunteers serve as tutors, mentors, and business partners, providing valuable support to our schools.

    We urge members of the community to get involved in our schools to help us better serve all of our students. Once thought to be the province of parents, our schools are 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.

    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.
