Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Howard County School System. We value our volunteers and the contributions they make to our students and schools. Only an approved chaperone can provide supervision to students on a field trip. A chaperone can be a parent of a participating student, an adult age 21 or older, or an employee. Chaperones must complete the Confidentiality Training and Child Abuse/ Neglect Training, be process through the visitor management system, and be approved by the principal to accompany and supervise students during the entirety of the field trip.
Your participation in this process helps make Howard County Public Schools a safer place to learn. We look forward to seeing you!
