Volunteering in FCPS

Fayette County Public Schools invites families and other supporters to participate in our educational community! We need all kinds of volunteers to help make sure our students have an enriching experience in the classroom and beyond.

Make a difference! Get connected to different schools and learn ways to engage with Fayette County Public Schools.

Background Checks

Background checks are needed every four years. If you aren't sure if yours is still valid, please ask Veronica Murrell in Human Resources at (859) 422-0624. If you need a background check:

Submit the volunteer application (pending)

Note: The volunteer sign-up system is down for maintenance. We expect the new version to be up by July 29. Thanks for your patience.

You can return to the background check link anytime to monitor the status. When the background check is complete, keep a copy for your records and contact the school to volunteer. (If your background check is not approved, you may submit an appeal.)

For questions, please call HR at (859) 422-0624.
