Volunteering in GJPS Schools
To increase safety and security protocols, all GJPS volunteers who may interact with students in an unsupervised setting or may have access to confidential information will be required to complete an online application that includes a background check. The district will provide the background checks at no cost to the volunteer.

Steps to Volunteer
- Contact your principal or teacher to express an interest in volunteering.
- Your principal or teacher will send you the link to the Online Volunteer Application and background check.
- Complete the Online Volunteer Application and Background Check at least 5 days before your initial volunteer experience.
- Renew your Volunteer Application and Background Check yearly from the date of issuance.
Volunteers are required to abide by all Board policies and district guidelines while on duty as a volunteer. This includes maintaining confidentiality of any student’s personally identifiable information to which they are exposed except as authorized by law. Volunteers will be covered under the district’s general liability policy, but the district cannot provide any type of health insurance to cover illness or accident incurred while serving as a volunteer, nor is the person eligible for workers’ compensation.
