Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Tyler. Be on the look-out for Tyler-specific dates for fingerprinting and TB testing.

From DCPS:
The District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) would like to thank you for your interest in volunteering in our schools. Each year, thousands of motivated individuals use their skills, resources, and knowledge to impact the lives of children living in the nation’s capital.

Getting Started
Before you can volunteer at any DC Public School, you will need to bring the documents listed below to 825 North Capitol Street, NE, 9th floor.

  • Tuberculosis (TB) Verification
  • Completed DCPS Volunteer Application
  • State issued photo identification

After you have turned in the documents stated above to the volunteer coordinator, you will then be asked to complete a fingerprinting clearance process on the 6th floor.
Your application will not be processed without your ID and negative TB results. Parent partners must also bring a memo of approval from the school principal.
Volunteer Processing Hours of Operation
Volunteers: Tuesday 9:00am – 4:00pm and Thursday 9:00am – 12:00pm
Parent Partners: Wednesday 9:00am – 4:00pm
The volunteer clearance process takes about 5-10 days to complete. You will then receive a verification letter from DCPS. Please bring this letter to your school as proof of clearance.
If we can be of any further assistance, please feel free to contact the Volunteer Program at For parent partners, please contact Jennifer Nguyen at 202-
