Confidentiality Training Course
Thank you for your interest in volunteering within the Howard County School System! We value our volunteers and the contributions they make to our students and schools.
According to HCPSS Board Policy, all parent volunteers/chaperones must complete a "Confidentiality Training Course" about protecting the privacy of our students, staff, and schools before they can register to volunteer. Click on the link below to view the brief 5-minute training. When you have completed the course, print and sign the Parent Volunteer Certification form. Please bring the signed form to the HCMS front office.
Child Abuse and Neglect Training
