Volunteering for Our School

The extras at RBW are not possible without volunteers!  It is a great way to meet new people and get to know the staff.  Also, great for developing or expanding your creative and/or leadership skills!

Here’s how to become an approved Polk County Public Schools volunteer at our school:

1. Complete the online volunteer application

Complete the District Volunteer Application and submit your online payment of $25. This fee covers your background check.

2. Wait for your application to process

Once your application has been processed, you will be notified about your approval status within three weeks.

3. Get your ID badge and attend orientation

Get your identification badge from your school and attend a school volunteer orientation.

Approved volunteers seeking to transport students in their private vehicles must complete an additional application found here.

School Advisory Council (SAC)


School Advisory Councils (SACs) were created by the Florida Legislature to assure continuous progress of Florida’s education goals in each school. The purpose of the council is to work collaboratively with the principal and staff to develop, monitor and evaluate results of the School Improvement Plan. The SAC shall assist in preparing the school’s annual budget, as well as Lottery and Technology funds budgets. The SAC must operate within the policies of the School Board and the parameters established by the state legislature.


Council membership reflects the ethnic, racial and economic community served by the school. A majority of the members of each SAC must be persons who are not employed by the school. Teachers, support staff and parents are elected to the Council. Community members are appointed by the principal.

Meetings are held monthly, or as needed to fulfill the duties of the SAC.
