Greenville County Schools Sign in Guidelines for Parents and Volunteers
Parents/Guardians and others entering a GCS school or office building must sign in through the system, which automatically runs a check against the National Sex Offender Registry. Everyone is checked EACH time they visit a school or office.
Parents can either sign in as a Parent/Guardian (receives a Visitors badge) or Volunteer (receives a Volunteer badge) depending on the purpose of their visit to their child’s school.
A person is eligible to volunteer through the school, PTA, and other school organizations once cleared through the National Sex Offender Registry. The Sex Offender Registry is in addition to any volunteer procedures used by our school, PTA, and other school organizations to recruit and train volunteers. If a volunteer has more than limited contact with students they will also require a criminal background check.
Also, please be reminded that volunteers must participate in training prior to volunteering.
