Dear Volunteers,

All parents/guardians of students enrolled in the Shelby City School District are encouraged to take an active role in the education of their children. The Board of Education recognizes greater involvement on the part of parents and the community members in the education of children generally results in higher achievement scores, improved student behavior and reduced absenteeism. Certain programs and activities can be enhanced through the use of volunteers who have particular knowledge or skills that will be helpful to members of the professional staff responsible for the conduct of those programs and activities. Thank you for giving your valuable time to enhance our programs.

Please note, it is very important that the information you enter on the volunteer application matches your government issued identification card including your full legal name.  It is important that you provide a valid email address so you can be notified of the status of your application and for future communication.  

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the District Volunteer Coordinator at 419-­342-3647.
