New Volunteer Application System

A Note from Mrs. Welser:
NEW VOLUNTEER APPROVAL SYSTEM:  Midland Public Schools has changed from their old BRAVO forms to a new online system through The United Way that will be an all online submission.  Hopefully this will streamline volunteer approval.
The volunteer levels are the same as in the past. The goal is to have all drivers and volunteers fill out the new form by the time August band camp rolls around. Included is the link for application.
