    • The actual appointment will take approximately 10 minutes; you will schedule at the location of your choice.
    • Processing can take up to eight weeks. 
    • Once cleared, HSD will be notified and your application will be updated with this information.
    • You will receive a notification when your volunteer application has been fully approved.

    Do you currently hold a teaching license in Oregon? If so, email Kristina Gantt - ganttk@hsd.k12.or.us with that information and include the name shown on your license.
