For the safety of our students, all of our volunteers are required to complete an application.
Volunteers will be asked to complete a form to conduct a background check. Negative results may result in volunteer denial or a fingerprint-based background check at the volunteer's expense. The district may also request a photo id to confirm identity.

Internet Options for Low Income Families
Shared from the Kent Intermediate School District
Learning can occur “Any Time, Any Place, Any Way, Any Pace,” but to continue learning in the home, high speed reliable broadband is crucial. With more devices in the hands of students, districts have shifted away from traditional approaches to homework. According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), seven out of ten teachers assign homework that requires high speed internet access, yet in some communities as few as one in three students have home internet connectivity. When students do not have internet access at home, the gap widens in terms of what students can do. Equitable access to the internet is essential to maximize lifetime learning and success.
Families can access www.everyoneon.org to learn what internet options are available in their communities, including mobile hotspots. The website also lists information on discounted computers for qualified families as well as local technology training opportunities. In the coming year, the FCC’s Lifeline program will begin to include internet access. Information on the updated program will be forthcoming.
