Family and community involvement is the key to student success

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Kennewick School District. We welcome volunteers to help out in classrooms, at school events and on field trips. Contact your child's school to find out what volunteer opportunities are available during the school year. 

Volunteers are required to fill out an application each school year. Kennewick School District conducts criminal background checks on all applicants through the Washington State Patrol. There are no fees to applicants. Volunteers are expected to follow all current district policies/procedures and any current state health and safety protocols for schools while volunteering.
