Create or renew your volunteer status with Miami-Dade schools

If you are new to Miami-Dade public schools, you'll need to create an account on the MDCPS website before you can register as a volunteer. To do this, you will need to ask for your child's MDCPS student ID and a 6-digit PIN number from the Sunset front office. Once you have created an account, you can register.
1. Log into your parent portal account.
2. Click the "Apps|Services|Sites" link at the top of the page.
3. Click "Be A School Volunteer" from the grid of links.
4. Select "Sunset Elementary" from the drop-down list of schools, check off as many Service Activites that interest you, then click "Submit".
5. Visit Sunset's front office and present photo ID to complete the process.

If you registered last year, you will need to reconfirm your registration (reselecting your school and activities) every year. It only takes a few minutes and you'll need it to volunteer on campus during the school year.
