All volunteers and field trip chaperones must complete online training on the prevention, recognition, and reporting of child abuse and neglect.

  • Volunteers may access the training, "Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse and Neglect:  for Volunteers and Contractors", by visiting the "Child Abuse and Neglect" page of the MCPS website.  
  • Volunteers will receive an email confirmation to verify their completion of the online training module.
  • All volunteers must provide a copy of the confirmation of completion to the field trip sponsor prior to the field trip.
  • Volunteers who took the training in 2016-2017 do not need to repeat the training in 2017-2018 (volunteers will be required to take the training every three years).
