Important: Volunteering in Fulton County Schools
To keep in compliance with State Law and best practices, for the 2016-2017 school year, we will require that all persons interested in volunteering in the Fulton County School District to re-register/register (even if a person has completed an application in the past) by completing the new online volunteer registration/application process. The registration process can be found on the FCS District Website under Community/Partners & Volunteers or Click Here. Applicants should be prepared to spend about 10-15 minutes for the training and application process. In accordance with State Law, all volunteers must be current with the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol Training before being allowed to volunteer in our schools. It is very important that volunteers enter their full legal name as it appears on their government issued ID (please do not use nicknames or “goes by” names on the application). All applicants must wait 24 hours after applying for application processing and approval.

Volunteer Registration Process
As you know, with the advent of our new sign in system our volunteer registration process changed. You only need to complete the process every year. Our volunteer process is as follows:
1. Register at http://www.fcsvolunteers.org/
2. Complete the mandatory online training.
3. Complete the volunteer application.
4. Please allow 48 hours for your application to be processed before you visit a school to volunteer.
5. When you arrive at a school for your first volunteer assignment, please present your government identification (i.e. driver's license, state issued ID cards, Mexican consular cards, green cards, military ID) to verify your identity.
In the coming weeks, we will have MANY opportunities for volunteers. Please ensure the above process is complete 48 hours prior to your volunteer assignment, this includes all field day volunteers. Remember, the volunteer process must be completed, including scanning your license even if you are registered as a visitor.
Please call the school or the FCS volunteer office at 470-254-7159 if you have any questions with the process.
