How to Volunteer at LEUSD



Volunteer applications may be picked up at each school site or printed from this web page through links below. 

Volunteering is a privilege and a service that teachers and staff truly appreciate. All volunteers must however, have a helpful task to perform under the direct or indirect supervision of a District employee. Volunteer ID badges should be worn at all times a person is volunteering.  Volunteer badges now show TB expiration and will need to be replaced when that date has expired.

All volunteers (except current employees and substitute employees) must be processed for an "A" red badge first. Current employees and substitute employees need only fill out an Intent to Renew Form* to register as a Volunteer "B" (purple badge) at their child’s school. Neither a red-A nor purple-B volunteer badge gives a volunteer permission to hang out with their student during meals or visit with other adults while on campus. Un-enrolled siblings/children of volunteers or employees are not permitted in the classroom during the school day (instructional time).
LEUSD Volunteer Process Chart for First Time Volunteers

"A" Badge Process

  1. Pick up a volunteer packet from your school site office or print from this site.
  2. Read the entire packet and complete the required information.
  3. Have your child’s teacher and principal sign on the first page.
  4. Obtain proof of a current negative TB test or chest x-ray (within the last year).
  5. Once forms are completed call (951) 253-7000 1Ext. 5185 or email (Cathy.Frigon@LEUSD.K12.CA.US) Safety and Risk to schedule an appointment.
  6. Your photo will be taken and you will receive your "A" badge at that time.

"B" Badge Process (Starts ONLY after "A" Badge process is complete)

  1. Schedule a FREE fingerprinting appointment by calling 951-253-7000 1Ext. 5185 or at the time you are being processed for the  "A" badge.
  2. LEUSD Live Scan Appointment times: 7:40am-9:00am & 3:00pm-4:00pm
  3. You may also complete a Request for Live Scan Services form here at the District office for fingerprint services through another vendor (anticipated cost of $42 - $52; prices vary by location). Fingerprint clearance is specific to each agency and cannot be “shared.” Fingerprint clearance only has to be done once and does not have to be re-done for as long as an applicant continues as a volunteer with LEUSD.
  4. Fingerprint results are sent directly to our District Office from the Department of Justice. (allow approximately 2 weeks). 
  5. You will receive a phone call to come and pick up your purple "B" badge when approved and ready.  Please bring red badge to trade for purple badge.

* Renewal Process

To renew your badge you must fill out an Intent to Renew form at the beginning of every school year.  Intent to Renew forms may be used only by those who are already registered volunteers or current LEUSD employees.

The Intent to Renew form requires a current year teacher and principal signature.  This form can be obtained at any school office or through the link above. 
The school site will send the completed signed Intent to Renew form to Safety & Risk Services to update the records. You do not need to hand deliver to the District Office for processing.  If the TB has not expired, the volunteer is able to volunteer at that time after paperwork is processed.  The school site personnel can check a master database for currently registered volunteers and TB expiration dates. New badges will not be issued every school year. Please continue to use the original badge.
Safety & Risk Services will replace any lost or broken volunteer badges at no charge. Renewal volunteer applicants are required by law to update their TB tests every four years.

Scheduling an Appointment
Processing volunteer applications are by appointment only Monday through Friday.

Call  951-253-7000 1Ext. 5185 or email Cathy.Frigon@LEUSD.K12.CA.US to schedule an appointment.
