At Three Rivers School District, we encourage our families and community members to support our students by volunteering. There are a variety of ways to serve as a volunteer. Examples of volunteer opportunities are Graduation Assistance Program (GAP) mentors, chaperoning dances, helping in classrooms or coaching. Please call your school’s office to inquire if you are interested in volunteering. Regardless of how much time you have or how many students you serve, the impact is significant!
If you are interested in volunteering in the schools, please read the following guidelines. These procedures will help us to provide a safe and secure volunteering experience at our schools. We appreciate your support in following them.
Please also reference our Volunteer Handbook
How to Get Started Volunteering:
1. Fill out the online application and pass a background check.
For the safety of our students, all volunteers are required to fill out an application and pass a criminal background check before they become a volunteer at the Three Rivers School District. The information you provide in your application will allow us to conduct a criminal background check. It can take up to two weeks for your application to be approved. Sometimes applications can be denied, please view the TRSD Criminal Conviction Matrix.
Your volunteer status is good for two years, at which time you will need to renew it by filling out a new application. We will also run another background check.
2. Check your email for approval status.
Once the steps above are completed, you will be notified via email if you have been approved. Please check your spam folder just in case. You should then notify the school so that they can work with you on when you will be needed, etc.
