Mandated Volunteer Training
Turner Woods Elementary School encourages parents, grandparents, guardians, and caregivers to participate in your child’s education and school activities. As established by Georgia law, any parent, guardian, or caregiver who volunteers in any capacity within the school system must participate in a training session for mandatory reporting prior to working with students. To keep in compliance with State Law and with best practices, we require that all persons interested in volunteering at Turner Woods Elementary School complete a volunteer training session. Examples of volunteering include, but are not limited to, individuals who attend school field trips, act as Room Parents, volunteer with PTO, visit or assist in classrooms (including socials), serve as mentors, or help with extra-curricular activities.
The mandatory volunteer training will be held throughout the school year at various times. If a parent, guardian or caregiver is unable to attend the training at Turner Woods Elementary School, he /she may attend a training at any school in Jones County. Applicants should be prepared to spend about 15-20 minutes for the training and application process.
Volunteer Training MUST be completed PRIOR to scheduled activity or event.
Thank You for supporting TWES!
