Volunteer information


In order to volunteer, go on a field trip, etc. you must have a current BCI background check on file. BCIs are good only for the current school year. Please review the steps below for new and returning volunteers. 

The current WPS Volunteer Process is on the WPS District website under Community/Volunteers.

NEW VOLUNTEERS: Please complete the online 3 step Volunteer Process. This is at no cost to the volunteer. All three steps must be completed in order to finalize the volunteer process. 

RETURNING VOLUNTEERS: Returning volunteers need to have an updated Local (RI State) BCI (Criminal Record Release form in Volunteer Process) done every year.  If there are no personal information changes, you do not need to complete the application - only the BCI check.
