Home About Volunteer


Parent and community volunteers make important contributions to our schools and enrich educational opportunities for students. Before signing up to help in a school, volunteers must complete required criminal background check forms. Additional optional training is also available.

Criminal Background Check

An approved criminal background check is required before volunteering. Interested volunteers must complete the following online form. Approved applications are valid for two years.

After completing the form, allow one to two weeks for processing. Contact your school to check your status to begin volunteering.

Volunteer Policies

The district requires volunteers to be familiar with volunteer policies JHFF, IICC and IICC-AR. Please view the District’s Volunteer Guidelines (English or Español).

SafeSchools Online Safety Training

safeschools_logoSafeSchools is an optional online safety training program for staff and parents on school-related safety issues.

To take optional parent trainings, register by clicking the link below.

Once you login to the site, you will see a list of courses assigned to you, and the date on which they are due. To begin a course, click on the title then follow the prompts.

To earn a certificate of completion, you must complete all sections of a course and pass the quiz. You do not have to take SafeSchools courses in one sitting, however; if you are called away, the system will remember where you left off and allow you to pick up again at that point.

Your participation will help to make Greater Albany Public Schools a safer place to work and learn.

If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Hill, 541-967-4501.
