Complete your Volunteer Training: 

This training is required of all volunteers (community and family) and non-MMSD personnel who come into school buildings and work with studentsVolunteering in other ways with the PTO (back-end organizing, day-of special events, etc.) does not require this training.  However, things like attending field trips, other in-class opportunities and/or recess volunteering will require you to be Level 2 certified.  This includes completing the following: 


Please note training is available asynchronously (recorded), and only needs to be completed once. MMSD is committed to anti-racist practices, equity, inclusion, and upholding our core beliefs. These trainings are in alignment with that vision, and it's important for volunteers to have a shared understanding. MMSD places a high value on safety and well-being; these training modules are important for the safety and well-being of students, staff, and volunteers. The objectives of the trainings are: COVID-19 health practices; safety and security protocols; and grounding in MMSD anti-racist mission/vision, identity and relationships, and strategies.
