How do I volunteer at RHS?
To volunteer at Ravenwood High School, you are required to be approved as a Tier 2 or Tier 3 volunteer. You can apply to be a Tier 2 volunteer by completing the School Volunteer Application and Confidentiality Agreement and returning the form with a copy of your driver’s license to the Ravenwood front office.
If you are volunteering in a capacity where you will be responsible for students without a faculty member present, you will need to be a Tier 3 volunteer. In order to become a Tier 3 volunteer you must complete the School Volunteer Application and Confidentiality Agreement mentioned above, and you must have a criminal background fingerprint check (Volunteer Fingerprint Process). You can find more information about Tier 3 at WCS Volunteer information.
The School Volunteer Application and Confidentiality Agreement mentioned above must be submitted each school year, however, the fingerprint check is a one-time check with the understanding that each volunteer is responsible for reporting any subsequent events.
What are the security procedures for the school?
To ensure a safe environment for all at Ravenwood, all visitors must sign in at the front office prior to entering the building. All visitors must also wear a Visitor sticker or a Tier III badge while in the building.
How do I find out my student's bus route?
Please arrive at the stop 5 minutes early. Pick-up and drop-off times are approximate and can vary due to factors outside our bus drivers’ control, such as traffic and weather. Track the Bus is a web-based program that allows students and parents the ability to view the location of the bus during transportation hours.

What is the new Teen Driving Checkpoints Program?
WCS high schools will implement a new program that will require new drivers of any age and their parent to participate in a face-to-face, one-hour education program before students are able to receive a school parking permit. The Checkpoints Program is for high school students that are new drivers and wish to park on school grounds.
Checkpoints was developed by Dr. Bruce Simons-Morton of the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development. The program was adapted for use in Tennessee by the Department of Health, Division of Family Health and Wellness/Injury and Violence Prevention. One of the major goals of the Checkpoints Program is to reduce teen crashes and violations received by teen drivers.as well as to facilitate family involvement in the early months when teens are able to drive on their own.
Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, all high schools in Williamson County Schools will implement training for the Checkpoints Program. Checkpoints Training includes videos and specific techniques to reduce injury and fatalities due to risky driving. Once students have met all of the state requirements and completed the Checkpoints Program one-hour training, parents and teens will create a “Checkpoints” teen driving agreement and students will be eligible for a parking permit. This free program will be held at all WCS high schools and is different from typical drivers training programs.
You can view the driving agreement here.
How Do I Register for the New Driving Checkpoints Program?
Beginning in 2017-2018, all WCS high schools will implement the Checkpoints Program for new student drivers wishing to park and operate a vehicle on school grounds. A new student driver is someone who has obtained his or her driver’s license since May 23, 2017. The safety seminar will be about one hour in length and is designed to facilitate conversations about safe driving expectations and responsibilities. At the end of the session, students and parents are required to sign a safe driving agreement. Once students have met all State requirements and completed the Checkpoints program training at any WCS high school, they will be eligible to apply for a RHS parking permit. Current drivers or students who have been driving for a year or more will not have to take the course in order to obtain the parking pass.
