A Site Volunteer is a parent, stepparent, legal guardian or grandparent who has a student at the school where he/she wishes to volunteer. If you wish to volunteer at the district-level rather than at a school contact the Human Resources Department at (602) 449-2177.
School sites will have the volunteer forms. Please visit the school site at which you wish to volunteer, and complete the Site Volunteer Application and the Site Volunteer Agreement.
School chaperones perform an invaluable service, providing for the safety of students attending events and on field trips. Any individual such as a parent, step-parent, legal guardian, grandparent or relative is eligible to be a school chaperone after a background screening. Chaperones will be fingerprinted and must agree to a background check.
The Volunteer in Paradise program matches community volunteers with one of the district's participating schools. We are looking for dedicated, high-quality volunteers seeking meaningful opportunities to make a difference. Volunteer tutors are needed in all subject areas in kindergarten through grade 6 at select schools.
Get involved in the parent-teacher organization at your school. The district works closely with the United Parent Council, a coalition of all PTOs district-wide that has regular dialog with governing board members and the superintendent.
