School Access Form

Complete the School Access Form


In a continuing effort to provide safety and security to our students and staff we ask that you complete a School Access Form if you plan to enter a facility in the St. Johns County School District. This includes if you would like to participate in activities such as birthday parties for your child in their classroom, eating lunch with your child in the cafeteria, field trips, book fairs, field days, as well as readers, tutors, mentors, etc.

Any person going beyond the front office area of a school must have a completed school access form, and present a valid driver’s license or state identification card when signing into a school.  To check your status, contact the school which you wish to enter two weeks after completion of the school access form.  It is suggested that the form be completed right away, as it can take two to six weeks to process.  Once school access has been granted, a person signs into the school as a volunteer, and chooses the activity that best describes what he/she will be doing in the school.  Driver’s license and state identification card are required upon each sign in.

In accordance with 119.071(5)(a)2.a(II)F.S. the St. Johns County School District is authorized to collect an applicant’s social security number for identification purposes in completing a local, state, and/or national criminal background check.  The information will be used only for verification of criminal charges held by an individual, and will be kept in strictest confidence.

All forms must contain your full legal name including middle name (no nicknames), address, phone, gender, birth date, and social security number. Note: if you are a legal citizen of the United States and you do not have a driver’s license, scroll down to the bottom of the page for a link with information on state I.D. You may also go to your local DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles-4030 Lewis Speedway, St. Augustine, see chart below for phone number).

You cannot volunteer until you have been cleared in the system.
Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at your school for information concerning the progress of your application.

If you are here on a visa and/or you do not have a social security number
contact Volunteer Services at 547-3945 for further instructions.
Please refer to the information below on acceptable documents.

By completing a School Access Form you are agreeing to a criminal background check and a sexual offender check. You are also agreeing to abide by the policies and procedures of the St. Johns County School Board and its facilities while volunteering, Your personal information will be kept confidential and you are expected to keep any and all information you may see or hear while volunteering confidential. The St. Johns County School District reserves the right to restrict and/or deny a person’s volunteer privilege when deemed necessary.

DO NOT fill out a new form if you have moved within the district or you child has moved to another school and you have a current record at the previous school, your record can be transferred to the new school. This will prevent duplications in the system. Check with the Volunteer Coordinator at the previous school, ask them to call St. Johns County Schools Volunteer Services and have your record transferred to the new school. Be certain to update your address and phone number if there have been changes so they will be correct once transferred.
