The Griffin-Spalding County School System has an outstanding volunteer program. Stakeholders may volunteer in schools. To learn more, contact the Communications and Partnerships Department at 770-229-3700.
Becoming a Volunteer
The volunteer program allows stakeholders to work within the schools to help students.  Each school individualizes its volunteer program to meet the needs of the students and teachers.  Under the leadership of the principal, the volunteers make a difference for children by helping in classrooms, tutoring and chaperoning field trips. 

While assisting students is important, the security of our students is always a primary concern.  Therefore, volunteers pay a non-refundable fee of $10.00 to cover the cost of a criminal background check.  Payment is made by personal check or money order payable to the Griffin-Spalding County School System. 

Please follow these instructions if you wish to volunteer:
  1. Check with your school of interest to ensure that you are not already on the volunteer listing.
  2. Complete an online application. Click HERE to apply.
  3. Complete the criminal background check form and return it to your school office. Click HERE for the form.
  4. Submit the completed criminal background check form, along with the $10 fee to your school of interest (allow 14 days for processing).
