Thank you so much for showing an interest in volunteering with St Augustine High School. While there is no obligation attached to your registration, we certainly hope you will choose to make yourself available to the school in some capacity. Every hour counts!
The PTO, Boosters, and teachers will be organizing many fun activities this school year and would love to have all SAHS families and community members join in! The more hands-on-deck, the stronger our parental voices and the more time our fine teachers have to spend with our precious children. Donations of money and supplies are wonderful – but so is your time and talent.
The following information has been compiled with you, our community, in mind. We hope this explains how you can prepare yourself to participate in any before, after and during school day activities you wish.

WHY DO I NEED TO SUBMIT TO THIS PROCESS?
In order to participate within the school the county requires that you submit your name for an official background check conducted by the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office and the National Sexual Offenders Database.
WHO SHOULD SUBMIT TO A BACKGROUND CHECK?
Anyone wishing to participate on school property or for school functions during the upcoming school year. This includes not only parents, but grandparents, caregivers and community members who have talents to share.
Examples of functions you must be approved for in order to participate:
- Field Trips
- Helping teachers in the classroom
WHAT ABOUT MY PRIVACY/WHO WILL BE SEEING THIS?
No one within St Augustine High School will handle your paperwork directly – this is a county law strictly enforced and managed by St. Johns County. It is for the safety of all our children.
The SAHS Volunteer Coordinator will only get a YES/NO response from the county and no additional information pertaining to why your application was rejected – your personal situation remains private.
DID I ALREADY DO THIS?
Your background check is good for 3 years. If you have done this for another St. Johns County school within the last 3 years, you do NOT need to resubmit. If you are unsure - please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHEN WILL I KNOW IF I WAS APPROVED?
No news is good news. The check should occur within two weeks (give or take). You will only be contacted if there was a rejection of your background check. If you have a problem with a rejection please contact the school's front office at (904) 547-7500 during business hours to find out how to proceed.
