Types of Volunteers
There are two types of volunteers, Tier I and Tier II.
Tier I volunteers may have unsupervised contact with students and can include coaches, field trip drivers, and tutors. Tier I volunteers undergo a more rigorous process before being approved. For more information on becoming a Tier I volunteer, please click the links below.
Tier II volunteers cannot have unsupervised contact with students. In order to become a Tier II volunteer, please read the Volunteer handbook below and contact your local school. Tier II volunteers are checked against the state's sex offender registry.
If you are unsure which type of volunteer you would be considered, please check with the office manager at your school site.
