Welcome

District Volunteer Application

We appreciate your interest in volunteering for Lake Washington School District. Our district offers a variety of activities you may choose from when volunteering your time. To ensure the safety of our students and staff, you must complete the volunteer application and be approved before you can begin your volunteer assignment.

It is very important that the information you enter on the application matches your driver's license, including your full legal name. You will also be asked to provide a valid email address so you can be notified as to the status of your application and for future communication. All information collected on the application will remain confidential and not be shared outside the volunteer program.

You will be asked in the application to acknowledge reading the Volunteer Handbook. If you haven't already done so, please do so now.

You will also need to submit a copy of your driver's license or other government issued picture ID in order to process your application and complete the background check. The Washington State Legislature has helped us to assure security for students by allowing background checks on all people who work with students in schools. Lake Washington School District supports this requirement; thus all volunteers must complete this form and undergo a Washington State Patrol Criminal Background Check.

Any falsification, omission, deliberate misrepresentation or failure to complete any part of this form is grounds for rejection as a volunteer. Lake Washington School District reserves the right to reject any applicant for any legitimate, nondiscriminatory reason. Decisions about volunteer approval status are made on a case by case basis. NOTE: Criminal convictions DO NOT necessarily restrict you from volunteering.  

If you do not have an email address, you may enter LWSDVolunteer@lwsd.org in the email field on the application. We will still process your application but will be unable to send you an approval notice or any future notifications.

 

If you have any questions about the application, please feel free to contact me.

Thank you.
