Whittier Education Campus believes volunteer service to our schools is essential to student success. The support of parents, grandparents, other significant relatives and community members creates an environment filled with opportunities for our students. Thank you for your interest in volunteering in Whittier Education Campus. We depend on volunteers to enhance programs and services for students. Volunteers assist regular employees and supplement student services and learning opportunities. Although volunteers are not paid staff members, they are expected to follow DCPS policies, rules and procedures at all times. As part of the many security measures we have in place to ensure safe schools for our students, we recognize the need to properly train and screen volunteers.
Volunteers include, but are not limited to: people who serve as mentors; tutors; non-paid coaches or club sponsors; overnight and day trip chaperones; Reading, Mathematic, Social Studies, & STEM partners; and parent group organization officers like the PTO, boosters, team parents. The training and background check are valid for one school year.
