ATC Tutor Registration

New Tutors should email ATC’s Program Director Lisa Jacobs at ljacobs@opmh.org to register. In addition, all tutors must complete the Alexandria City Public Schools (ACPS) volunteer application.  Submission of the ACPS application triggers a background check good for 12 months.  

When your background check is complete, Angela Houghton of ACPS will notify you. At that time, make an appointment Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday 10-6 at ACPS central office, 1340 Braddock Place, Room 530 (angela.houghton@acps.k12.va.us or 703-619-8055).  Bring a driver’s license or government-issued identification to verify your identification and to receive a volunteer badge.   The ACPS application is available here: https://alexandria.keepntrack.com/apply   Note: the ACPS volunteer form does not work if activated from a mobile device; please register from a computer.

Returning Tutors should also register with Lisa at ljacobs@opmh.org  You should be notified via email one month prior to the expiration date of your ACPS volunteer badge, at which time you must provide written consent for a new background check. Upon approval, your badge will be re-validated for an additional year and you will receive an email notice.  If your badge has expired, contact Angela Houghton at angela.houghton@acps.k12.va.us to request a renewal.
