• In an effort to streamline the background clearance process and more efficiently manage volunteers, the District has moved to an online volunteer management system. The new system can be accessed here from any computer or smartphone, however, parents who may still need assistance can also sign up at their school. The FACE Office will continue to take paper applications through March 31, 2020 which will provide time to transition all current volunteers, communicate and train all stakeholders and the designated volunteer coordinator at each school. After March 31, 2020 all applications will need to be completed online or schools must upload the information directly to secure processing and approval.

    Family and Community Engagement will host weekly training and information sessions through the end of February beginning December 13th. All schools are expected to send the person responsible for volunteers at their individual schools to an upcoming training session. You can sign up today by clicking here.

    Training's may also be scheduled at your school upon request by emailing Collette Carlton at Collette.carlton@detroitk12.org or call 313-873-7490.
