Volunteering In the FMSD

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Fort Mill School District. Keeping our students, faculty and staff safe is our top priority. To help ensure safety, background screens for volunteers are necessary.

A social security number is required to submit a background application. A driver’s license is required in the school office for the Ident-a-Kid system checking for sex offenders. Without these documents, a full and complete background screening cannot be guaranteed.

Before submitting a background check request, please note the following:

School Volunteers/Chaperones:

  1. Prior Year Submittal: Confirm with your student's teacher that you are on the approved list. The system will not allow duplicate applications.
  2. Current Employees, Coaches or Substitutes wishing to volunteer in another capacity do not need to submit another background application. Notify your student’s teacher if you are currently active in one of the aforementioned roles
  3. New Volunteers follow the corresponding link to the left to submit your volunteer application. Volunteer applications cannot be submitted by mobile device. Notify your student’s teacher of your interest.  
  4. Chaperones: A SC SLED is also reviewed for chaperones going on all field trips.
  5. Volunteer cards are no longer issued. 

Athletic Volunteer Coach:

  1. Requirements: A Volunteer Coach Application, Negative TB test result (less than 12 months old) and approved background including a SC SLED are required to be on file before volunteer coaching.
  2. New Volunteers: First, express interest to a Head Coach or Athletic Director at the school. The Athletic Director notifies Human Resources of the volunteers they wish to utilize. Follow the corresponding link to the left to submit your coaching volunteer application. Volunteer applications cannot be submitted by mobile device.
