Shakerag Volunteer Registration
To keep in compliance with State Law and best practices, for the 2017-2018 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.
As part of our move towards Personalized Learning, we will be teaching all our students how to use the Internet safely, ethically, and responsibly. Visit Common Sense Media for tools that you can use at home to further support these goals.
Shakerag is part of Fulton County's first group of schools working towards the goal of Personalized Learning for our students. We are excited to begin the work of transforming education to help challenge and engage students for the 21st century.
Below is a quick look at our past, present and future learning.
