Volunteer Registration

All school volunteers are required to complete a form. This document is automatically sent to your selected school building principal and office staff. A separate form must be completed for each school of interest.

Volunteers will receive an email notice confirming receipt of the completed form.

Security Checks

All volunteers are subject to a background check process used by the Akron Public Schools District. School personnel will request a copy of your Ohio driver's license and/or state I.D. for this purpose. Volunteers working one-on-one with students are required to get a background check. The cost for a FBI/BCI check is $48. Please contact Merge Freeman at 330-761-2961 or 330.761.2914 for more information about the background check process. Any APS volunteer serving students without the supervision of an APS staff person or in a one-on-one (student-adult) environment (virtually or in person) is required to complete a background check for volunteer approval, prior to the start of service.

Please contact your program liaison for more information about how to proceed with your volunteer work.
