Volunteers & Partners

​Fulton County Schools values and promotes active engagement of the community in all of our schools. Thousands of individuals serve as volunteers in our schools each year. Volunteer opportunities may include:

  • Serving as tutors, mentors, or guest speakers
  • Providing assistance in classrooms, cafeteria, library, or main office
  • Organizing student enrichment and recognition activities
  • Supporting special events, athletics, and school planning councils

How do I become a volunteer?

Volunteer Registration

To keep in compliance with State Law and with best practices, we require that all persons interested in volunteering in the Fulton County School District register or re-register (e​ven if a person has completed an application in the past) by completing the new online volunteer registration/application process.  Applicants should be prepared to spend about 10-15 minutes for the training and application process.  In accordance with State Law, all volunteers must be current with the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol Training before being allowed to volunteer in our schools.  It is very important that volunteers enter their full legal name as it appears on their government issued ID (please do not use nicknames or “goes by” names on the application).  All applicants must wait 24 hours after applying for application processing and approval.


For additional information about volunteer registration contact Tara Penn at 470-254-7159 or penn@fultonschools.org.



How do I become a partner?

The school system welcomes and encourages organizations to partner with schools to support student achievement.  Organizations desiring to establish partnerships with local schools must first seek approval from the local school principal.  Working collaboratively, the organization and local school principal must design the parameters of the partnership and establish goals.  Each local school partnership should include:

  • Partnership goals for the school and partner organization
  • Resources to be provided by the organization and the school
  • How the partnership supports school strategic plan initiatives
  • A completed Annual Partnership Agreement which includes the signatures of the principal and partner representative

In Fulton, the partnership process has three distinct areas:

  • Partners In Education (which can include mentors, guest speakers, volunteers)
  • Education Funders (which may include Teacher/Staff Appreciation, materials for school clubs)
  • Boosters

To learn more about each of these areas, and to see Best Practices and additional information, click the below links:
