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