Volunteers Welcome!

Volunteers play an important and valuable role in the Rogers Public Schools. Students, teachers, staff, parents and the community all benefit from the work of individuals who volunteer their talents and resources. Each year, over 1,500 volunteers contribute 50,000 hours to help our students and this is one of the reasons the Rogers School District is able to offer a high-quality education to the future of our community.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact the volunteer coordinator at any of our schools. Your help would be very appreciated. Check out our volunteer information and guidelines brochure.
