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 a Badge Pass visitors badge. Wearing your
name badge while at the school and during your volunteer activity will ensure that
school staff and students can easily identify you. Please take a moment to log in
your volunteer hours by signing-in with your Volunteer password and ID at
Computer inside 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!!
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 the county. 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 make the registration process easier for you, you can download the registration
form by clicking on the Volunteer Registration form below, fill it out at your
convenience and return it to the front office at your next visit to the school.
Always sign in and obtain a Badge Pass at the school office before beginning your
volunteer activity. Please log all volunteer hours by signing in with your volunteer
password and ID into Focus/SIS. Volunteer hours are tracked by the county to
provide recognition to the school and track the impact of volunteer services on
students. See the document to the right for instructions on how to log hours.
