Volunteers

  • Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Parkway School District.  The district has a long history of active school volunteers.  Parents, guardians, and patrons provide assistance to students in a variety of ways from helping with academics to supervising field trips.  The educational program of the district benefits from the thousands of volunteer hours given each year.

    The Volunteer Applications are online forms and will be submitted automatically upon completion.   Background checks are completed for all Parkway volunteers who will be working with and around students.  Volunteers are expected to follow all Board of Education, and building policies and procedures, including confidentiality of student information. 

    There are two volunteer categories:  General and Extended/Overnight

    • Volunteers who assist in a classroom, office, or library, help with snack sales, act as a dance or party chaperone, etc, fall into the General Volunteers category.
    • Individuals interested in volunteering for an extended or overnight field trip, or as a Host Family, are considered Extended/Overnight Volunteers.  This includes field trips with sports or activity teams.  A Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) fingerprint-based background check is required for all extended/overnight volunteers.

    For the 2019-2020 school year, a new volunteer application system - Volunteer Tracker - was implemented.  If this is your first time accessing the new system, you will need to click on the New Registration link to register your email address and create a password.

    New Registration link

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email.  Click on the link in your confirmation email to access the registration site.  After you have successfully completed your registration, you will use the email address and password you chose during the registration process to log into the Volunteer Tracker.

    Once you have completed a Volunteer application, you will receive an email that your application has been submitted and the appropriate background checks will be initiated.  Volunteers will receive an email notification when they are approved.  After approval, if you have any questions about your volunteer services, please contact the school directly.

    Thank you for volunteering in Parkway Schools!  Your contributions are invaluable!
