Volunteer Procedure

  • Thank you for your interest in volunteering in District 47! Volunteers assist our schools in a variety of ways and positively impact the educational experience of our students. For the health and safety of our staff and students, volunteers are required to complete a brief online application. The application process includes a background check conducted by Raptor. Volunteers must fill out and submit an application each school year. See below for more information. 


    Effective January 11, 2023: All District 47 visitors and volunteers (including those who’ve had their ID scanned in Raptor) will be required to bring their drivers license or state ID when visiting a school building. In addition, individuals will be required to leave their ID with the main office in exchange for a visitor lanyard. When leaving the building, visitors must return to the main office to drop off their lanyard and pick up their ID. This added layer of security ensures that visitor lanyards are kept in the building and do not get circulated in the community and also ensures everyone in the building is accounted for in the case of an emergency. Thank you for helping to keep our schools safe!
