Level 1 Volunteering
Level 1 approval covers the majority of volunteering. With a Level 1 clearance, you must stay within eye and earshot of a school faculty member or teacher at all times. There is no cost to the volunteer
To become a Level 1 volunteer, you should:
- Sign up! Fill out and complete the District's Volunteer Application. Once you complete your application and background check through JDP, you will receive an email notification.
- Reach out! Once approved, you will be added to the school's approved volunteer list. If you are eager, reach out to schools so you can get started ASAP!
- Find the best fit! If you aren't sure where you want to volunteer or what you want to do, contact us in Community Relations to find a school that needs your specific skill set. You can call (941) 927-9000 ext. 31500 or e-mail CommunityRelations@sarasotacountyschools.net
- Possibly get Level 2! Level 2 approval allows you to work with students one on one. Level 2 is required if you are chaperoning a group of students alone or on an overnight trip. Please Click "Level 2 Volunteering" to learn more.
