With your volunteer assistance, the District’s goal to provide a safe environment for students and staff is strengthened. We encourage all parents, guardians, community members, student graduates and business partners to contribute to learner success as a school volunteer. However, there are prerequisites needed for your kind participation. The State of Florida and the Monroe County School District have developed policies and procedures to which we all must adhere to maintain a safe and secure learning environment. To accomplish a safe and secure learning environment in MCSD, volunteers shall be screened based on (1) the level of direct contact they may have with students and (2) the types of duties that they may perform.
