District Volunteer Procedures
ALL VOLUNTEERS WILL NEED TO COMPLETE THIS PROCESS TO VOLUNTEER DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR.
For the safety and welfare of all students and staff, the Hillsboro School District conducts criminal history background checks on all volunteers ages 18 and over. Signing up to volunteer at Jackson (or any school in the Hillsboro School District) is relatively easy. And once you are cleared, you are good for two years. You will now be able to complete your volunteer application from the comfort of your home.
There are two basic steps for becoming a volunteer through the district's recently updated online system:
- Go to https://volunteerapplication.hsd.k12.or.us, click on the language you'd like to use, then follow the link for "New Application" or "Renew Application"
- Complete the online application, which includes reading the Volunteer Handbook - the link to which is found in the application.
Once you have completed the application and allowed for processing (approximately one week), you must check with our office manager in the Jackson office. She can let you know if you have been cleared. Once you have confirmed that you have been cleared, check with your child's teacher or the PTA for available volunteer opportunities.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO ALWAYS CHECK IN WITH THE OFFICE, SIGN IN AND OUT ON THE CLIPBOARD AND ON THE COMPUTER, AND WEAR YOUR VOLUNTEER BADGE.
