Volunteers can and do make a difference!
We enjoy having visitors and volunteers in our schools and invite parents to be actively involved in our classrooms. The Riverview School District depends on volunteers and values their contributions. We care about the safety of staff and children, so all prospective volunteers must apply and be approved before they can begin volunteering in Riverview.
Application Process and Instructions
All volunteers are required to complete the online application which includes a disclosure statement, review of policies and procedures, and submission of picture identification. This information is used to perform a background check through Washington State Patrol. In addition, all volunteers are required to review the volunteer handbook prior to their first day of volunteering.
If you are unable to apply online, or need assistance in completing the online application, please contact Riverview School District at 425-844-4500 to make arrangements.
When volunteer applications have been processed, applicants receive an email confirmation upon approval. This process can take up to two weeks from the time the application is completed. Volunteer status is good for two academic years.
Volunteers Assisting a Coach
Some schools utilize the services of volunteers to assist the employed head coach or activity advisor in an authorized athletic/social program. If the coach or adviser determines a need for volunteers, and if you are interested in volunteering in this capacity, you must complete the online application for volunteer coach.
NOTE: Volunteer coaches must submit fingerprints.
Volunteers Driving Students
Under most instances, the Riverview School District does not allow parents to be volunteer drivers. However, there are special circumstances. If you have been asked to be a volunteer driver by your child's coach or activity advisor, please fill out the online application at least two weeks prior to the first event. In addition, the coach or activity advisor must have all students fill out the "Permission to Ride in an RSD Approved Volunteer Vehicle" form before the first event.
If you have any questions about the volunteer application process, please contact the Riverview School District at 425-844-4500.
