Before You Volunteer
Be proactive and volunteer. You're in charge. A lot or a little. Synergize! Because working together is better. We appreciate all of our wonderful volunteers! Even if you can only volunteer an hour, you can still make a difference! Before you volunteer however, there are a couple of boxes you'll need to check.
1. All Volunteers should be PTA members. Click Here To Join PTA
2. Super Important!) Volunteers must complete an N.E.I.S.D. Volunteer Criminal History Background check before being volunteering on campus (OR going on any field trips).
*Note: If you applied to volunteer during previous school years (and were approved) you do not need to re-apply to volunteer for the current school year. The volunteer program will automatically resubmit your background check every 2 years until you request it no longer be renewed. To check your volunteer number and status, either click here or on the link at the top of the page.
Log Those Volunteer Hours!
Keeping track of hours is one of many ways we measure the success of our volunteer program. Even if you work outside of school hours or from home.
