Volunteer Services

  • Thank you for your interest in volunteering to engage with our DPS students and educators.  As of 7/1/2021, due to the COVID-19 virus, all in-person volunteering must adhere to the following: 
    1. Must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination. 
    2. Comply with the DPS volunteer background check process.
    3. Wear a mask at all times.
    4. Maintain physical distance.
    5. Practice good hygiene.
    6. Stay home if you are sick.
    7. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.
    Note:  For the purposes of this guidance, people are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 ≥2 weeks after they have received the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or ≥2 weeks after they have received a single-dose vaccine (Johnson and Johnson (J&J)/Janssen)
    If you are interested in volunteering in-person or virtually and you are available during the school day starting August 23 when classes resume, please complete the DPS Volunteer Background Check located at the following link - https://equity.dpsk12.org/get-involved/volunteer-services/ You will be contacted in early September to discuss a school assignment.
    Volunteer Background Check for UNSUPERVISED VOLUNTEERS
    Process for volunteers who work directly with students in an unsupervised setting (not in the line of sight of DPS staff).   
    The Unsupervised Volunteer Background Check does not require volunteers to undergo fingerprinting.  The higher-level background check IS completed online using Sterling Volunteers.  This is the same platform used for Supervised Volunteers.  To submit a request for a DPS Unsupervised Volunteer Background, please  use the google form found at the link - https://forms.gle/cn7guMjsFig5onFVA   
    You will need to provide the volunteer's name and email address.  Once the form is received, Volunteer Services will follow up with the potential volunteer by email.  Each year, volunteers will need to reapply to renew their eligibility status for the following 12 months.  
    Unsupervised Volunteers will be listed in the DPS Volunteer Portal and identified in the Position(s) column -
