Dunwoody Elementary is a special place to be because of its awesome staff, students and YOU!  Our PTO volunteers help support the school in many ways: Staff Appreciation, Grounds, Family Events, Spirit Wear, Field Day, Yearbook, Book Fair and much more!

Required Training for Volunteering


Any parent who volunteers (Mystery Reader, Lunch Bunch, Field Day, Picture Day, etc) must complete the DCSD mandated training.  The State of Georgia Mandated Reporting of Suspected Child Abuse Law was revised expanding the listing of persons who are categorized as mandated reporters of child abuse and neglect. This list includes anyone who volunteers in a school.


To ensure that all school volunteers are aware of their responsibilities and penalties associated with non-compliance, ALL VOLUNTEERS ARE REQUIRED BY LAW to go through a brief training presentation on the mandatory reporting of abuse and neglect and what it means to be a mandated reporter.
