How to Become a School Volunteer


Per school Board policy 2430.1, School Volunteers must be cleared at Level 1 or Level 2, depending on their volunteer activities, prior to beginning any volunteer service.


  • Parents, students, employees, and community members who wish to volunteer at a school, region, or District office MUST register online through the M-DCPS portal(s).


  • Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, NEW procedures require:


  • All volunteers will be re-screened through volunteer application  every school year.


  • Ample time for planning volunteer activities (including chaperones) as background screening is no longer instantaneous.


  • Four business days for clearance results.



All previous volunteers must re-register online EVERY year!
