• Volunteers are an integral part of the Rowan-Salisbury Schools outlook on serving our students.  Parents that get involved early in their children's education see more pronounced and longer lasting results.  Benefits for students include: earning better grades, scoring higher on tests, attending school more regularly, having better social skills and having a more positive overall attitude toward school.   

    We have two tiers of volunteers. Tier I is required to submit a volunteer registration, background screening and the volunteer interest formIf you do not have a smart phone, please use this link for the background check.  Tier II is required to complete the Tier I process along with attending a volunteer training session.  Training sessions will be advertised closer to the beginning of the school year.  You can attend a training session with Communities in Schools or at a Rowan-Salisbury Schools session, as they are reciprocal.   

    If you need assistance with the background screening, please call 704-439-3900.

    Please see the calendar below for training opportunities.  Training is open to all potential volunteers, regardless of the training site.  No registration is necessary.

    The volunteer process is usually completed within 1-2 weeks.
