Throughout the school year, we will ask for parents to volunteer for field trips and activities happening in our school. In order to do this, you will have to register through our new program called Volunteer Tracker.
A new automated volunteer management program called Volunteer Tracker is being launched in JCPS. We are very excited as it provides many benefits over the previous process. Volunteers can click here to be taken to the link for the tracker. Once the application is submitted, school level volunteer coordinators will accept the applications and human resources will initiate the background check. When the volunteer is approved, they will be notified. The automated routing provided by volunteer tracker will be more efficient for everyone.
The first time a volunteer accesses the system they need to click on the registration link, “New Registration” (see below) to register their email address and create a password.
There is a video that will help guide our volunteers through the registration process. At the Jackson County Schools Volunteer Tracker login page (listed above), you will click on “Click here to see Video on Registration Process for Volunteer Tracker”. If the volunteer needs assistance, they may click on “Need Help?” at the bottom of the login page.
