School Volunteer Fees

School Volunteer Background Check Fees Update

UPDATE: Volunteer Background Check Fees will remain at $25 for the remainder of the school year.

The new background checks will include: a national background check, Social Security number verification, address verification, multiple name/alias check and terror watch list check.

Volunteers are required to reapply and renew their background check every five years from the date of their application approval.

For now, those wishing to become an approved volunteer should visit www.polkschoolsfl.com/getinvolved.

Print an application, fill it out, and submit it to the school where you would like to volunteer.
