Mentoring & Volunteering

A variety of opportunities to volunteer within our schools and with various school organizations exists, and the South Western School District recognizes that the success of our learners depends on the help of the entire community. For information on what background clearances are needed to volunteer, please contact Lisa Duke. Please check with individual schools, and on each schools website and building blog, for specific opportunities to volunteer which may exist in each building.

A district-wide mentoring program also exists at South Western. If you are interested in more information about becoming one of our mentors, please see the flyer or contact Dr. Daniel W. Hartman, Assistant Superintendent, with specific questions about the mentoring program.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and for the safety of each of our stakeholders, the difficult decision has been made to suspend the South Western School District Volunteer program until further notice. As of September 8, 2020 – the district will not be accepting new or renewal volunteer applications for the 2020-2021 school year.

Any volunteer that was ACTIVE for the 2019-2020 school year will not be penalized for not completing the renewal process this year, and their clearances will remain valid for a period of sixty (60) months from the issue date on the respective clearance.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank each of you for the many hours you have donated to the district students, staff, and organizations.
