Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in serving CFBISD students and staff. Due to COVID-19, volunteers are not able to personally visit our campuses. We are allowing virtual volunteer participation on a case by case basis.  Campus staff will work with our volunteers and mentors to determine the best way to continue to serve our students while in person restrictions are in place. We are looking forward to welcoming you into our buildings as soon as possible. Thank you for continuing to serve.

Volunteer

A large contributor to the success of our students and staff has been the support of the community and specifically those who volunteer their time and expertise. Volunteers provide the extra attention so desperately needed to support the high level of educational experiences enjoyed by our students.

Thank you for joining the CFBISD family and thank you for the life-changing investment you are making in tomorrow’s leaders.

To volunteer, attend class parties, chaperone field trips, and other events, please complete the required online background check every school year.

CFBISD uses a communication tool called ParentSquare.  You will receive information, notifications and the background check application through ParentSquare.
