New Volunteer Portal as of September, 2016: PCS implemented a new Volunteer Portal in the fall of 2016. These are the new sign-on instructions.
(The old website is not available) Previous usernames and passwords should work on the new v.portal. The new v.portal will allow each volunteer to link and unlink schools of their choice for volunteering; and to update contact information. The screen for entering hours is now 2 sections: one for Tutor/Mentor hours and another for Support hours.
Below are instructions to determine your PCS Volunteer v.portal user name and/or password AND instructions for activating your Volunteer portal.
All volunteers must ACTIVATE (ie: answer confidentiality questions) once, preferably in September, each school year.
How to determine your Volunteer username and password: (If this is not working for your name, please contact me for assistance).
(hints: Case Sensitive; Use Mozilla Firefox
. Other browsers may not work correctly. Don’t use cell phone for Activation- use a pc only)
Go to our new v.portal: www.pcsb.org/volunteer
, scroll down and click on #4 Activate; Enter your user name and password.
For username, all lowercase: v.lastname, firstinitial (example for tom smith….. v.smitht).
For password: LastnameXXXX (capitalize first letter only) where XXXX is yearofbirth (example: Smith1959 )
Volunteer Portal Sign-On Instructions
To Volunteer or chaperone, our volunteers must be ACTIVE in our volunteer system once each school year. Use Mozilla Firefox
, go to www.pcsb.org/volunteer
Scroll down and Click on #4 “Activate”; then “Click Here” to answer the confidentiality questions. This will activate you.
Then, before volunteering, please “add your hours” by signing-on to your v.portal. Go to pcs.org/volunteer; Click “Activate”; then “Click Here” . This can be done at home or at the school before volunteering. Our volunteer hours are very important to our school and county for showing how much our families and community do for the success of our students!
Some names may not follow these rules. If you have difficulty, please contact Alison Albee firstname.lastname@example.org
