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!
The security of our students is a primary concern. Volunteers pay a non- refundable fee of $25.00 to cover the cost of a Florida Department of Law Enforcement background check. Payment is made by certified check or money order payable to the Polk County School Board and submitted with a volunteer application at the school site. Check with your school and make sure you are not already approved.
Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
Membership in National PTA is open to anyone who is concerned with the education, health and welfare of children and youth. You do not have to have a child in school. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, community members…anyone can join! We need your support to affect upcoming legislation that affects all children.

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.
