We LOVE Volunteers at SES!
Johnston County Public Schools welcomes and appreciates volunteers in our schools! Research shows that when families and communities are involved in school, children have an increased likelihood of being successful in academics and social interactions. Please read the following information to learn how to become a volunteer and support our schools!
JCPS Volunteers can be approved on two different levels:
Level 1: A Level 1 Volunteer requires only the approval of the school principal and does not require a criminal records background check. A Level 1 Volunteer is intended for activities that do not involve direct and independent supervision of students. Such activities include, but are not limited to: field trips, clerical work, resource speaker, outdoor projects, our SES PTCO fundraisers/activities, athletic concessions, room parent, field day volunteer, school fair, or working with small groups of students while supervised by a school employee.
Level 2: A Level 2 Volunteer requires principal approval as well as a criminal records background check and district approval. Level 2 approval is at the discretion of District Administrators. A Level 2 Volunteer is intended for activities that include, but are not limited to: tutors who directly supervise students, field trip or dance chaperones, coaches, mentors, or any other activity where a volunteer is directly and independently responsible for supervising students.
