Volunteer Procedure

Greenville County Schools (GCS), in an effort to ensure the safety of all of our students, is implementing additional security checks for school volunteers.   Effective immediately, all volunteers must submit an application to the school and receive clearance from the district before interacting with children in the school or chaperoning any school field trip. Ralph Chandler Middle School will begin implementing this process immediately.  Our primary responsibility is to safeguard our children and ensure we are in compliance with the identified guidelines.  Thank you for your cooperation as we work with our stakeholders to complete this process.  All volunteers will be required to remain in the presence of a GCS employee at all times until applications for Level II are approved.   Please feel free to contact a school administrator if you have any questions.
