Volunteers and community partners play an important role in Salem-Keizer Public Schools. Every day in every school, volunteers support and encourage staff and students, and take an active role in helping every student achieve. Through their contributions of time, energy, inspiration and expertise, volunteers often report they receive more than they give.

Anyone may apply to become a volunteer. Before taking part in a volunteer activity, applicants must complete a criminal history check.

You can use our online webform (click here) to submit a criminal history check. The online process is secure, and only authorized district staff will see the results. The online submission form is the preferred method.

A paper criminal history check form may be submitted (available in several languages), however the clearance process can take several weeks. See attachments at the bottom of this page to download a fillable PDF of the PAP-F003 “Criminal History Check Packet”.  Fill out the form, print it, and return to Human Resources: Volunteer at 2450 Lancaster Dr NE, Salem, OR 97305.

This form is not for Salem-Keizer School District Staff. If you are a current employee and have questions about volunteering, please call Human Resources at 503-399-3061.
