Serve to grow. You make a difference.

Whether you have students just starting out in elementary school, ready to graduate or just have a willingness to make a difference in our schools, we encourage you to consider volunteering.

Your interest to helping our students succeed and working together to create a positive impact on their educational journey is an integral part of the educational setting. Parents/guardians and volunteers involved in the education of our students is an important part of our Strategic Plan here at Sauk Rapids-Rice Schools this year. 

Becoming a Volunteer at Sauk Rapids-Rice Public Schools

Participation in the School Volunteer Program is based on specific requests or needs identified by school staff, teachers, or students themselves.

Please complete this form to share your volunteer preferences. We will contact you as opportunities become available.

2024-2025 Volunteer Preferences 

The safety and well-being of our students are of utmost importance and a top priority of the school district's.
Volunteers are expected to maintain appropriate boundaries and adhere to school policies and guidelines at all times.
To further ensure the safety of our student's, we require comprehensive background checks for all volunteers.
As is the case in neighboring school districts, volunteers will be responsible for paying the $14.00 background check fee.
A background check is valid for three (3) years.

Once completed, those with a valid and acceptable background check will be eligible for school volunteer opportunities and we will contact you as opportunities become available.
