Volunteering at Franklin or Randall

Volunteers help our school community achieve great things! If you’re interested in chaperoning field trips, volunteering in your child’s classroom, supervising recess or helping out at your child’s school, you will need to receive MMSD volunteer approval. All volunteers must complete the district required process (background check and trainings) before beginning to volunteer. Training is available asynchronously (recorded), takes approximately 2 hours and only needs to be completed once. This training is required of all volunteers (community and family) and non-MMSD personnel who come into school buildings and work with students.

MMSD volunteer training steps:

  1. Application in Volunteer Tracker
  2. COVID-19 vaccination verification
  3. Required training modules: Learning Forward Together, Universal Strategies for Infection Prevention , Building Safety & Security Protocols.
  4. Background Check (by MMSD once the above steps are completed)

MMSD is committed to anti-racist practices, equity, inclusion, and upholding our core beliefs. These trainings are in alignment with that vision, and it’s important for volunteers to have a shared understanding. MMSD places a high value on safety and well-being; these training modules are important for the safety and well-being of students, staff, and volunteers. The objectives of the trainings are: COVID-19 health practices; safety and security protocols; and grounding in MMSD anti-racist mission/vision, identity and relationships, and strategies.

You can review the steps and begin this process at MMSD’s Volunteer page
