•  Due to the uptick in Covid cases with the variant, volunteers will not be allowed in school buildings until further notice.


    Norfolk Public Schools is looking for people who want to make a difference in the lives of our students. The time commitment is nothing compared to the lives you will change, or the lives that will change yours. We need chaperones, mentors, tutors, assistant coaches, cafeteria monitors, and more.

    All interested volunteers must complete an application. Once approved, volunteer status will be valid for two years. 

    You will be guided through the easy application process and required to e-sign a release form. Once submitted, your profile information will go directly to Background Investigation Bureau for processing. Most background checks will be completed within 10-14 business days. Should further review be necessary before a determination can be made, you will be contacted within two weeks. 

    All approved volunteers will receive an email notification letting them know that they are approved and then will receive a credential ID card within 10-14 business days of approval via the United States Postal Service. 

    To volunteer with Norfolk Public Schools, you must meet the following criteria:

    • You cannot have any felonies on your record.
    • You cannot be a registered sex offender.
    • You must be eight (8) years removed from a misdemeanor charge.

    Thank you for your interest in volunteering!
