Volunteer Background Checks Now Open for 2023-24


Are you interested in volunteering at one of our schools during the 2023-24 school year? Volunteer background checks for the upcoming school year are now open!

Every volunteer in the Sherwood School District must have a criminal background check completed each school year (July 1-June 30). It can take 7-10 business days to complete the process, so if you are planning to volunteer in the upcoming year, completing this process during the summer months is a great way to make sure you are cleared before the first day of school! 

You only need to submit your information one time per school year. If you completed the process at any time during the 2022-23 school year, even as recently as June 2023, you will need to complete a new background check for the upcoming year. Additionally, COVID vaccinations are no longer required for K-12 school volunteers as per recent guidance updates from the Oregon Health Department and the Oregon Department of Education. 

Once your background check has cleared, your name will be added to the approved volunteer list for all SSD schools. Please note, no approval notice goes out to cleared volunteers, so if you have questions about your submission or want to confirm your background check has been processed and approved, please contact the office of the school where you would like to volunteer once the office reopens in August. 

To complete the volunteer approval process for 2023-24, please complete the form below:

The time our parents and community members devote to our schools is what helps make our district great — thank you for your interest in volunteering!
