Keep Your Account and Background Checks Current
We'd like to remind returning Woodburn families to update your PAWS account when you've received your teacher assignment.
PLEASE KEEP YOUR ACCOUNT CURRENT, SO YOU CONTINUE TO RECEIVE UPDATES, VOLUNTEER INFORMATION, AND PROCESS ONLINE PAYMENTS.
- Please login to the website and update your student's teacher(s) information and make any other changes.
- Once your account is updated, you can update your volunteer interests for this year. We will update this every year, so even if you completed this last year, the form will be blank and you can select your preferences for this year.
- All parents/guardians of Woodburn students are automatically members of PAWS (no dues!)! Click here to create your account.
Also, to volunteer in the classroom with the Integrated Arts Program, at school events, or on field trips, you also need to complete the Camas School District's Volunteer Form, which includes a background check.
To complete the school district's background check, you can set up or update your account on the new district online volunteer management tool and then walk through the steps to complete your application. More information can be found here. Once completed, the approval lasts for two years and you can login to review the expiration date (though you may not be able to renew until the expiration date).
