VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Register to be a Kealing Middle School Volunteer
All individuals interested in volunteering at Kealing Middle School must register as a Kealing school-based volunteer and complete a background check through Austin Partners In Education.  Volunteers must register every school year, for each campus. 

Frequently Asked Questions
  1. If the parent volunteered last year do they need another background check? Yes
  2. If they have already signed up at another campus to volunteer do they need another background check and does that qualify them for Kealing? An additional background check is not required but they must go back to register as a Kealing school-based volunteer.

Are you a proficient informational writer? Are you interested in volunteering to support Kealing Academy students? We need your help! In order to help our students improve as writers, we are soliciting writing coach volunteers. Students will be focusing on expository writing, which has the primary goal of delivering information about an issue, subject, method, or idea.Volunteer writing coaches will conference one-on-one with students to improve their writing skills. Each volunteer will be assigned to a classroom, working under the teacher's guidance to support ongoing instruction. Students will bring a piece of writing to the session, and the volunteer will provide feedback and encouragement.

Volunteers should be available for one class block of coaching at least one day per week. A brief training will be provided to help prepare the volunteers.
