Questions? Contact us


or in the Classroom

Fill out a volunteer form and background check online with Portland Public Schools to volunteer in the classroom or go on class field trips. 


NEW parents interested in volunteering must complete a background check and the volunteer code of conduct via the PPS link below. Returning parents need not apply if the form has been completed within the last three years.

Individual classroom needs vary and are managed by teachers.  Please contact your student’s teacher to inquire directly about volunteering in their classroom.  Click here for a list of teacher contacts.

With all of us pitching in, we can do great things for our students!
