Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at CCES!
UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, volunteer opportunities will not be permitted when the school is in the red or yellow zones.  
A "Blue Card" is needed for many volunteer opportunities. This card is provided by the district office after a thorough background check has been completed. The cost is $45 (money order only). You can only obtain it on Tuesdays at 8:30 AM from the district office (65 Gilreath Rd, Cartersville). The card expires annually, but you can renew it for five years (no cost).
