Volunteering

  • Volunteers are valued partners in the education of Snohomish School District students. We encourage family and community members, as well as local businesses, to consider serving in our schools. Not able to volunteer during school hours? Many schools offer volunteer opportunities that can be completed at home. Volunteering is an excellent way to demonstrate to our students the value our community places in their education and their school.

    Volunteers in the "educational setting" are required to be fully vaccinated or have an approved religious or medical exemption per state Proclamation 21-14.5. On Friday, May 20, 2022, Governor Inslee amended the state's vaccination proclamation to exclude the vaccination requirement for volunteers and contractors whose work is primarily in an outdoor setting. Volunteers in the "educational setting" whose work is primarily indoors must show proof of COVID-19 vaccination (boosters not required) or have an approved religious or medical exemption on file with the school district. Volunteers seeking a religious or medical exemption should contact their building principal for more information on the approval process for those types of exemptions. (Note: On September 8, 2022, Governor Inslee announced that the state's vaccination requirements for employees, volunteers and contractors in the educational setting will end by October 31, 2022.)

    To volunteer in our district, all volunteers must also complete the online form below. For the safety of our students, volunteer applicants must undergo a Washington State Patrol background check before beginning service. This process must be completed every two years.

    A background check will be conducted after you submit your online application. You will then receive an email with your approval status. Volunteer applications are valid for two years from the approval date. Upon approval, please bring the email and badge received to the school office where you will be volunteering.

    If you do not have a valid photo identification, or if you have limited access to email and the internet, please let us know. For more information, please contact us at 360-563-7280 or volunteers@sno.wednet.edu.
