Volunteer Background Checks

Thank you for your interest in supporting our cities schools through volunteering.

Volunteers can support instruction and learning in both hands-on and 'remote' ways. We value your input and willingness to support high quality instruction for our students.

All individuals seeking to volunteer for the Woonsocket Education Department must have a Criminal Background Check conducted prior to volunteering in one of the district schools. This can be done through the Woonsocket Police Department by appointment only. Please call 401-766-1212 to setup your appointment.

Please refer to the links below for more information are the requirements.
