We appreciate your interest in volunteering for the Twin Falls School District. Our district offers a variety of activities you may choose from when volunteering your time. Simply complete and submit a volunteer application and upon approval, you will receive instructions on the next steps that may be required.
It is very important that the information you enter on the application matches your government-issued identification card (ex: driver’s license), including your full legal name with middle name or initial. 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 communications. All information collected on the application will remain confidential and will not be shared outside of the volunteer program.
If you select to volunteer as a chaperone, a coach (coaching/activities), or any events where you would have unsupervised contact with students, you will be required to complete a drug screen and be fingerprinted by the district. Please only select chaperone if you have been asked by a district employee to accompany a specific group of students on an out-of-district event (HOSA, BPA, State competitions, etc.) If you are wanting to accompany your child on a field trip, please select field trip from the list.
If you have any questions about the application or the volunteer program, please contact Shannon Swafford at (208) 733-6900.
