Volunteer with Madison

At Madison, we understand how important is it to provide meaningful opportunities for parent and community involvement. Volunteering at your child’s school, whether in the classroom or on a field trip, is a great way to stay connected to your child’s education. Madison also has opportunities for members of our community to get involved with their local schools as well.

A complete list of available volunteer opportunities for each school are available in the volunteer application. Please note that online volunteer registration for middle schools is scheduled for the 2017-2018 school year. For volunteer opportunities at the middle schools, please contact the school’s front office.

Anyone volunteering on an overnight field trip will also be required to obtain background and fingerprint clearance. Madison will cover all associated costs.
