How to Volunteer

Dear Future Volunteer:

Congratulations for choosing to volunteer with the Tenino School District. The evidence is beyond dispute: when schools partner with families to support learning, children succeed not just in school, but throughout life. On behalf of the school board and staff, I extend a warm welcome to you.

District policy requires volunteers to submit an application on an annual basis. This application will cover your involvement in all Tenino Schools for the current school year.

In order to ensure that our schools continue to be a safe learning environment, the district is required by Washington State law to have all volunteers complete a background check and a criminal history disclosure statement. Your Washington state patrol report will be treated with confidentiality and kept on file. Misdemeanor offenses will be decided on a case by case basis. If you have a felony or a crime against a child, your application will be denied.

Please complete the volunteer application in ink, and be sure to sign it. The application cannot be processed without your signature. Please attach a copy of your driver license or state issued picture ID card.

After the completed paperwork has been received, please allow 10 days for processing your application. Completed applications may be delivered to any Tenino school office, the district office located at 301Old Hwy. 99 North in Tenino, or mailed to:

Parents, guardians, staff, and the larger Tenino community all want a quality education for our children. With your volunteer contribution, we will be much closer to realizing this goal. I look forward to working with you as a partner in pursuit of educational excellence.
