Due to districtwide precautions to prevent the spread of Covid-19, Aurora Public Schools will not be approving Volunteers for any of our sites during the 2020-2021 school year.

In order to continue with the District's mission to accelerate learning for all students, the only group allowed in buildings will be pre-approved APS Partners.  

APS Partners will be processed and issued a badge in a contactless manner this school year. These are the steps to follow:

  1. Complete the online Partner Screening and Badge Request Form to get started.
  2. Email a copy of your valid government issued photo ID (your driver’s license is fine) and a passport style picture to volunteer@aurorak12.org.(Note: We will accept a selfie, but please do not add any filters to your picture)
  3. After completing Steps 1 and 2 above, the Security office will generate an invite for you to complete the background screening process – that will be your confirmation that we have started the process for you.

After the three steps above are completed, you will receive an email invite from Sterling Volunteers prompting you to submit your personal information directly to the company. You have 72 hours to complete the process, as the link will expire.

*Please email volunteer@aurorak12.org to request another invite.*

When the screening is complete, the Security office will review results and once deemed eligible, the Partner badge will be printed.  The badge will be sent via interschool mail to the APS site where you will be working - no exceptions.
