GSCS Volunteering GuidelinesTop of Page

Both of the following forms must be completed. Take the completed Criminal Background check form along with $5.00 to the school.

In order to provide even safer schools, we are requiring all our volunteers who work with or around students to complete an application and authorize a criminal background check. The Griffin-Spalding County School System is strengthening the safety measures for students, and this process is one of those measures.

The background checks are good for 5 years.

Whether you have been a volunteer in the past or are new to school volunteering, we urge you to complete the application and authorization of release of criminal information as soon as possible. Please return the background form to a school. We will process it and send to our Human Resources Department to complete the authorization.

The Griffin-Spalding County School System offers training for all volunteers. As soon as your application is processed and approved, you will receive an invitation to the next training.

We value your contribution to our schools and look forward to your working with our students.  Even if your schedule keeps you from volunteering right now, please complete the application process and be ready to join our school volunteer team when the time is right for you.
