Welcome to Volunteers in School (VIS)

We are again welcoming Volunteers into our school buildings. Please follow all Portsmouth School Department COVID guidelines upon entering school facilities.

***Proof of COVID vaccination is now required to volunteer in all Portsmouth Schools. Please make a copy of your vaccination card and submit with your application for approval.

If you would like to volunteer in one of our schools, an updated Volunteers in Schools application is required each year.

If you are a new or returning volunteer to the district, or you are a new volunteer to a particular school building, you must submit an Authorization Form (side tab) which allows the district to conduct a background check. Background checks are now required each year. Please complete the form, include a copy of your driver's license (front and back) or passport, a check (no cash please) for $5.00 made payable to BCI, and return to your child's school or to Central Administration.

The final requirement for volunteers is to register with our Google Forms (side tab).  This is where you will let us know your contact information and the school and grade of your child.

Thank you so much for volunteering your time!
