Welcome

Volunteer Application for Alachua County Public Schools

We appreciate your interest in volunteering in the Alachua County Public Schools. At this time we don’t know if or when volunteers will be allowed in the schools due to COVID-19. It is recommended that you go ahead and complete the volunteer application so that you will be approved when volunteers are welcomed in to the schools or if there are opportunities outside of the school. If you don't know where you want to volunteer or what type of volunteering you are interested in, it is recommended that you contact the district School Volunteer Office before you complete the volunteer application! (kostamkb@gm.sbac.edu/352-955-7250 x 6412)

If you know where you want to volunteer, complete the volunteer application and submit all information requested. It is very important that the information you enter on the application matches your government issued identification card including your full legal name. It is also important that you provide a valid email address so you can be notified as to the status of your application and for future communication.

You are required to complete a new application every year. All applications for the 2020-21 school year will expire on June 30, 2021. As part of standard safety practices, all volunteers and visitors must provide a photo ID each time they visit an Alachua County Public School or facility. A national check of the sexual predator registries is completed each time a volunteer checks into our facilities. Other criminal history websites are checked as warranted.

Please answer all legal questions completely and honestly to ensure that you will be eligible to volunteer. You may refer to the information below to answer the questions. 

For purposes of School Board policy, convicted means there has been a determination of guilt as a result of a trial or the entry of a plea of nolo contendere, regardless of whether adjudication is withheld, entered into a deferred prosecution or pre-trial diversion agreement, have charges now pending against you, or have sealed or expunged records.

TIPS FOR COMPLETING THE APPLICATION:

*Enter your full name and address as it appears on your driver's license.

*Please choose only the school(s) where you would like to volunteer. Choose each child's school and list all children's names and grades.

*If you are experiencing problems finishing your application in Raptor, try a different internet browser. Internet Explorer and Chrome work best. 

*Make sure you scroll down to the end of each section of the application to complete all requested information.
