Volunteering
Check out this Capital Times article "Volunteers continue to bring 'good energy' to East High" featuring East High School parents and community members.

Beginning November 29, 2021, MMSD is implementing a new and more efficient background check process for ALL volunteers and/or community members who work directly with our students. The process typically takes between one to five days. Social security numbers (SSN) are required for national criminal background checks. Volunteers who are unable to provide a SSN should contact the partnerships department (partnerships@madison.k12.wi.us) for further instructions prior to filling out the volunteer application. A background check will still be completed, but will take longer. Please note that U.S. citizenship is not a requirement for volunteering, and citizenship status is not a part of a background check report. Volunteers are automatically emailed the results of the clearance (approved or denied). The details of the background check report are not shared with building staff nor saved in Volunteer Tracker.

Thank you to all the supportive adults in the community who volunteering in an unofficial capacity to provide a calming and reassuring presence in the neighborhood during transition times, including open campus lunch.

Those interested in volunteering can sign up with the district here.
