    Williamson County Schools would not be the district it is without the help of its incredible school volunteers. From helping out in the cafeteria to organizing events in the school building, there are many ways to get involved. 

    There are three levels of parent volunteers: Tier One, Tier Two and Tier Three. Tier One volunteers may help in highly public settings, such as book fairs and field days, where school employees are also present. Tier One volunteers do not require an application or background check.

    A Tier Two volunteer can be in the school building or classrooms with a certified teacher or professional. Those interested in being a Tier Two volunteer must fill out the consent form on the district website and submit a copy of any ID to the respective school.

    Tier Three volunteers can be assigned to be with children without a certified professional and must be fingerprinted. Fingerprinting results are usually available within a week to 10 days, and volunteers may check with their school to confirm the fingerprinting status. Instructions for scheduling a fingerprint background check are available on the district's Volunteer page.

    Communication will come from the school level regarding volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Stay connected with your child's school to learn how you can get involved.
