Volunteering for Our School
The safety of our students is a primary concern. Volunteers pay a one-time, non refundable fee of $25.00 to cover the cost of a Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) background check. Payment is made by certified check or money order payable to the Polk County School Board and submitted with a volunteer application at the school site. Volunteer approval is continuous from year to year and applies to all Polk County Schools. Check with our Secretary, Kay Jester, to make sure you are not already approved.

- A criminal background check will be performed with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Volunteer approval takes a minimum of two weeks.
- Once your application has been approved, please call our volunteer coordinator, at 965-5464 to schedule an orientation and begin volunteering.
- As you begin to volunteer, please remember to sign in at the office and take a visitor's badge. Please log your time spent volunteering at the end of each visit.
We thank you for taking an active interest in the lives of our children!
