Visitor & Volunteer Registration Information
Identification and Sign-in/Sign-out Procedures
Because student safety is the responsibility of the school, always report to the school office before you begin your volunteer activity. Begin by signing in with the front office with your driver’s license and obtaining an Ident-A-Kid visitors badge. Wearing your name badge while at school and during your volunteer activity will ensure that school staff and students can easily identify you.
IMPORTANT: All volunteers are required to be registered and MUST have an approved status to attend all field trips. It takes about three weeks to complete this process, so please make sure you have registered with us in advance of any field trip or volunteer opportunity you are considering.
Pinellas County Schools has a responsibility to its students, staff, and visitors. All individuals desiring to volunteer whether in a classroom or to act as a chaperone on a field trip are required to complete the application process. Volunteer applicants are also required to show a legal, government issued photo ID upon registration to verify their name and date of birth. Information on the registration form is used to conduct a background check by Campus Police. All information is for program use only and will not be given to any other organization, group or person. Pinellas County Schools reserves the right to refuse volunteer assignments to individuals convicted of offenses pursuant to 112.011, Florida Statutes (1997).
To become a new volunteer, you must first fill out an online volunteer application. Please see the registration link below.
If you are a current or former volunteer, you do not need to complete another volunteer application. You will just need to click on the link above to reactivate your volunteer profile for the current year. Volunteers are required to reactivate their profiles each school year prior to volunteering.
Please take a moment to log your volunteer hours by signing-in to your volunteer profile from home or on our Community Access Computer outside the front office. The Focus Volunteer System keeps a record of your hours of service, which the school will receive recognition for based on the number of volunteer hours accumulated over the school year. Please don’t forget to sign out!
