District Volunteer Application

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Portland Public Schools (PPS)! 

We believe that families and community members are important partners to support our students. In order to maintain a safe environment for our students, PPS requires volunteers to: 

  1. Review the Mandatory Volunteer Training and agree to adhere to all of the requirements.
  2. Complete this online volunteer application which authorizes PPS to conduct a Volunteer Background Check.

Be sure to complete the volunteer application completely and accurately, including your full name, date of birth, and email address. You will receive an email once your Volunteer Background Check is complete, and that email will provide instructions regarding how to volunteer. 

If you have questions about the Volunteer Background Check, contact securityservices@pps.net
