Volunteer registration

Following are the procedures for reactivation for continuing volunteers and the process for new volunteers to obtain Criminal Record Check (CRC) clearance in 2021-22. There have been several changes in procedures, including the addition of a new requirement for current WCPSS employees who want to volunteer to register.


NC Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHS) current guidelines limit non-essential visitors and activities involving external groups or organizations on school campuses. *We hope that we will be able to welcome volunteers back to our campus at some point in the future so please register so you are ready to be involved. The process can take up to two weeks to be completed.
