Recording data...

Thank you for applying to volunteer. Your time is appreciated. If you are already an approved volunteer in Tumwater School District, you do not need to complete the online volunteer application. Approvals are valid for two years. After you submit your information, the volunteer coordinator will be in contact.

As we are welcoming volunteers back into our building, we are receiving a higher volume of applications. Consequently, our processing is taking longer than normal. After you’ve submitted your application, please allow up to two weeks for processing. Please do not apply again as you are waiting because this may delay your initial application. You will receive an email once you’ve been approved. If you have not heard from us within two weeks, please contact us at 360-709-7000 to check on the status. Thank you for your understanding.

This application contains four very short sections. Please complete all four, they really are short and will just take a few minutes. This information will help us link you to the best opportunities at the best locations for you, especially if you have children in the district.

The items with asterisks are required and must be completed to submit this form. When you have finished the last section, the SUBMIT APPLICATION button will appear.

We are pleased you are interested in volunteering in the Tumwater School District. As you take on this very important role, we want to provide information to you related to confidentiality so that each person who works in our school will understand the importance of this issue and the privacy rights of our students and staff.

Volunteers observe students working at different levels and with different needs and challenges. Some students need extra support in academic areas, some will need help in solving problems and others will need help making appropriate behavior choices. These areas of support might be observed while helping students with academic learning or while in the hall, cafeteria, on the playground or other common areas of the school. Anytime you notice conflicts or difficulties that are not resolved by the students, please make sure a staff member is informed promptly. Please make sure any conversations that take place with a staff member related to a specific student’s or group of students’ needs are done privately (out of earshot of all students and other adults). Please understand that teachers are not free to discuss other students with you.

We appreciate it when volunteers report any such incidents or concerns to us and we also request that volunteers not speak of such incidents or concerns with anyone after having left the school. In this way, we can protect the privacy of all children at our schools. This is expected of all staff members within our schools and we must require it of all volunteers as well. There can be no tolerance for violations of confidentiality. Continued volunteering is contingent upon respecting this request.

If you do have questions related to confidentiality please do not hesitate to ask a school staff member.
