Whether you are a professional looking to share your time or talent, a community member wanting to give back, or a parent looking to support your child's school, we are thankful for your interest in volunteering with ACPS.

    Volunteers offer a huge resource and support base for ACPS while showing students the importance of education.

    We use the KeepnTrack application and screening system to help ensure students' and staff safety. In order to perform volunteer work within ACPS departments/schools, you must first complete and submit the online ACPS volunteer application below. A criminal and sex offender background check will be performed.

     Volunteer Application Process

    1. Individuals 18 and older must complete and submit the Volunteer Application. A background check will be performed on all applicants. The process is free of charge to volunteers. ACPS is investing in this service as part of its commitment to provide a safe and secure environment for students.
    2. Approved volunteers will receive an authorization email directing them to the ACPS Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Center located at ACPS Central Office, 1340 Braddock Place, to complete the verification process. Volunteers must bring a valid photo identification.
    3. An ACPS Volunteer Card with a barcode and ID number will be issued to volunteers through the FACE Center.
    4. Always use your volunteer card at the designated kiosk located at each school to sign in and out.
    5. Please make certain to always visibly display the printed volunteer sticker while on school property.
    6. Volunteers will be notified one month prior to the expiration of their approval date and a request will be made to run a new background check. If the volunteer is interested in continuing to volunteer, he/she must respond with written consent. A new background check will then be run. Upon approval, the existing volunteer badge will be re-validated for an additional one year period. The volunteer will receive an email notice.

  • Important Volunteering Update

    Please note that as of January 1, 2017, a social security number is no longer required to volunteer with ACPS.

    All individuals interested in volunteering within ACPS departments/schools, will still need to complete and submit the online ACPS volunteer application and a criminal and sex offender background check will be performed.

    As we move towards more inclusionary procedures across ACPS, we advance our goal of creating an atmosphere of mutual trust, enhanced engagement with families and culturally responsive relationships.

    If you have any questions, please contact the ACPS Office of School, Business and Community Partnerships at 703-619-8307.

    Actualización importante

    Actualización importante A partir del 1 de enero del 2017, las escuelas públicas de la Cuidad de Alexandria no requerirán de un número de seguro social para procesar aplicaciones de individuos interesados en servir como voluntarios dentro de las oficinas, escuelas o instalaciones de ACPS.

    Toda persona interesada en formar parte y participar como voluntario necesitará completar una aplicación en línea la cual servirá para verificar antecedentes de delitos sexuales y criminales.

    ACPS tienen como meta ofrecer un ambiente de mayor inclusión y con este nuevo cambio de procedimiento nos acercamos a nuestro objetivo de crear un entorno de confianza mutua, mayor compromiso con las familias y relaciones culturalmente receptivas.

    Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con la Oficina de Escuela, Negocios y Relaciones Comunitarias de ACPS (ACPS Office of School, Business and Community Partnerships) al 703-619-8307 o en español al 703-619-8055.

    تعديل هام

    يرجى ملاحظة إبتداً من ١ يناير ٢۰١۷ بأن رقم الضمان الإختماعي لم يعد مطلوباٍ لغايات التطوع في مدارس مدينة الكساندريا .

    على جميع الراغبيين في التطوع لدى مدارس مدينة الكساندريا اأو إداراتها أن يكملوا طلب التطوع وإرساله عبر الإنترنت . وسيتم التحقق من خلفية المتطوع من السجل الجنائي و الإعتداءات الجنسية .

    كما تتحرك مدارس الكساندريا بإتجاه شمولي عبر جميع المدارس فأن هدفنا التقدم نحو خلق جو من التثقة المتبادلة وتعزيز لمشاركة مع الأهالي والتجاوب بين مختلف الثقافات والحضارات .
