Volunteer Updates

Individuals will now need to be vaccinated in order to volunteer in schools. Montgomery County Public Schools requires school volunteers and partnership agencies to complete certain compliance measures in order to volunteer within our school district.

  • Online Recognizing Child Abuse and Neglect Training via their myMCPS Classroom/Canvas account
  • Background check (dependent upon the type of volunteer service, per the Volunteers regulation and FAQ)
  • COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation – NEW!

Beginning September 20, 2021, volunteers will be required to upload their Certificate of COVID-19 Vaccination to remain on the volunteer roster.

Please review the Volunteer/Contractor Vaccination Attestation Update for details on this process.


COVID Testing Update

We now have on-site COVID rapid tests. With parent permission, we are able to administer these tests to symptomatic students, reducing the number of students that must quarantine. Students will not be tested without parent/guardian permission.

Families can fill out the consent form, which is available in multiple languages online, or request paper copies from their school. If there is no consent form on file, parents will be called to give their verbal consent and school health staff will send home a consent form along with additional information about the test results.

If families have already submitted a consent form for the COVID-19 screening tests, no further action is required. MCPS will accept consent forms received for the screening test program as consent for rapid testing. Consent for both the random screening test program and rapid testing have been consolidated into one form.
