Volunteer Information

Volunteers provide invaluable support in our schools, helping empower every child to dream, believe and achieve.
Update Fall 2021: All volunteers are required to provide COVID-19 vaccine verification and complete a COVID safety training as part of the volunteer application. Unvaccinated community members may volunteer, however, they will be unable to work directly with students. All volunteers will be required to adhere to the district's COVID-19 safety protocols including masking and physical distancing.
Application Process and Instructions
All volunteers are required to complete the online application. Once the application is received, district staff will email a volunteer disclosure form and a volunteer rules/requirements agreement for the applicant to sign and submit with a copy of photo identification and COVID-19 vaccination card. The photo identification card is used to perform a background check through Washington State Patrol, a requirement for all district volunteers.
If you do not have access to a computer, one is available in the lobby of the District Office at 2323 E Farwell Rd. If you are unable to apply online, contact the District Office at (509) 465-6000.
Approval Process
When volunteer applications have been processed, applicants receive an email confirmation upon approval of the initial screening. School building supervisors will complete your volunteer assignment after the screening is complete. This screening process can take up to five business days from the time the application is completed. Approved volunteer status is good for two academic years. Schools can check to see if your volunteer application is approved and current. Ask a staff member in the school office to see if your name is on the approved volunteers list.
