Anyone interested in being a volunteer for Nikiski Middle/High School must submit a volunteer application online at the District Website.. The process for applying to be a volunteer has remained the same.  However, due to a change in background check providers, the turnaround time for a volunteer application will take longer than in previous years. Routine background checks will take 7 to 10 days. Please plan accordingly if you plan on volunteering and call the school with any questions.
