Volunteer

Parents and other members of the community may wish to volunteer in the classroom, and we warmly welcome volunteers at Smothers.

All volunteers, including parents, must complete the DCPS Clearance process before volunteer services can be provided. To complete the DCPS Clearance process, complete the following steps:
  1. Complete the online Clearance Application, here: DCPS Clearance Application.
  2. Complete a TB test or obtain documentation showing cleared TB test results from the last 12 months.
  3. Report to DCPS Central Office (1200 First Street NE, 10th Floor) during operating hours to complete the fingerprinting process: Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 5 pm and Fridays from 8 am - 3 pm. TB test results must be provided upon reporting to Central Office for fingerprints*. Individuals who fail to produce TB test results from the last 12 months will be denied fingerprinting services. 
  4. Wait 3-10 business days for a clearance letter, indicating cleared fingerprinting results.
