The Polk County School Board has an outstanding volunteer program, with over one million service hours donated by more than 30,000 volunteers each year. Investing in our schools helps students succeed. Thank you for volunteering to help our children receive the highest level of instruction. Since the security of our students is our primary concern, all volunteers must complete a volunteer application and have a background check. Volunteers pay a one-time, non-refundable fee of $25.00 to cover the cost of a Florida Department of Law Enforcement background check. Payment is made by certified check or money order payable to the Polk County School Board and submitted with a volunteer application at the school site. Volunteer approval is continuous from year to year and applies to all Polk County Schools. Check with your school and make sure you are not already approved. All applications are due by February 1st of each school year. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at our school, you must first fill out an online application and be approved by the district.
