    • Fill out the online application. Please be sure to complete your profile and checklist.
    • Complete the items in the checklist, including the mandatory disclosure.
    • A State Patrol background check is conducted on all volunteer applicants.
    • The principal or director will contact you if you are approved to volunteer.
    • Once approved, all volunteers must annually reapply to volunteer.
