Does Norfolk Public Schools make it hard to volunteer? Myth: Busted

NO, Norfolk Public Schools makes it appropriately SAFE for community members and parents to volunteer. There is an online application that can be found HERE with two levels of volunteer membership in Norfolk Public Schools. A safe learning environment is the backbone of a fantastic education. All volunteers are checked against the Virginia Sex Offender Registry operated by the State Police, and criminal background checks are run on volunteers seeking a deeper level of involvement with students in the schools.
