Fulton County Schools Volunteer Registration Portal

  • This portal is designed to assist you in registering to be a volunteer with the Fulton County School District for the volunteer period of June 1, 2018 - June 30, 2020. All approved volunteers must re-apply for volunteer status every two calendar years. Any previous volunteer in the district must re-apply for this two year period. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us.

What is a Fulton County Schools Volunteer?

  • A school volunteer is a non-paid person who serves in an auxiliary capacity under the direction and supervision of school personnel. A volunteer is one who performs duties that an employee could perform such as making copies, filing, sorting, escorting students, assisting with lunch duty media center or front office tasks. Any person who leads or assists students (other than their own student) in programs or tutors a student(s) is considered a volunteer.

    The process for volunteering takes about 30 minutes total and includes about 20 minutes of online mandatory child abuse reporting training required by the State of Georgia for all volunteers.

Volunteer Process Frequently Asked Questions

  • The following information is provided to help school administrators, faculty, staff and parents understand changes in the policies affecting school volunteers and field trips. These policy revisions were made to address parent and community concerns regarding student safety during and after the school day.

    Per Board Policy IFCD, all volunteers who will be working with students of the school must complete a Volunteer Registration Application on an annual basis. Furthermore, school volunteers are mandated reporters of abuse pursuant to OCGA 19-7-5.

    All persons interested in volunteering in the Fulton County School District must complete an application every two years. Even if a person has completed an application in the past. To keep in compliance with State Law and best practices, we will require everyone to re-register/register after June 1, 2018. The registration process can be found on the FCS District Website under Community/Partners and Volunteers. In accordance with State Law, all volunteers must be current with the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol Training before being allowed to volunteer in our schools. All applicants must wait 24 hours after applying for application processing. Applicants should be prepared to spend about 10-15 minutes for the training and application process. It is very important that volunteers enter their full legal name as it appears on government issued ID. Please do not use nicknames or goes by names on the application.
