Williamstown Independent School District values the commitment of our many volunteers. All volunteers (any individual over the age of 18, who is not a student or paid employee of Williamstown Independent Schools) must submit to a criminal background check. The cost of the background check is $20, payable by the individual requesting to volunteer within our district. Once your application has been approved, you will be able to volunteer within the district for 2 years. Clearance expires 2 years after approval, and volunteers will need to submit another application and payment at that time. Applications can be completed online:
Online Criminal Background Check Application (mail check or money order for $20 to the address listed at the top of the application)
Download the Criminal Background Check Application here, complete and return it to the Williamstown Board of Education along with a check or money order for $20.
Volunteers may be utilized in several ways, including the following:
- classroom assistance
- tutoring or mentoring
- book fair
- field trips
Volunteers in the district must enter the building via the front entry of the appropriate school. Individuals must sign-in at the school office, and wear a visitor's badge while on campus.
