volunteer information

Welcome to Fridley Public Schools and thank you for your interest in volunteering!

We are grateful and deeply appreciative of all our volunteers and the importance of their participation in our schools cannot be understated. For the safety of all of our students, all volunteers must have an approved background check and complete a review of our volunteer packet which contains important school policies and procedures. The entire application and review process can be competed online. We hope you will consider making a contribution to our schools by sharing your time with us.

Volunteer Approval Process:

Please check with your child's school or classroom teacher for volunteer opportunities. Volunteers must have an approved background check and complete a volunteer packet before starting volunteer services in the district.
