Elkhorn Village School

Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Washington Unified School District! For the purpose of processing, volunteers are divided into two categories:

 

Category 1: These volunteers are assisting while in view of the teacher. This category does not require fingerprint clearance.

Examples: Room parent, day field trip chaperones, dance chaperones, science fair/carnival volunteers, and one-time classroom volunteer/presenter. 

An on-going in-classroom volunteer, within the view of the teacher, does not require fingerprint clearance but must complete and submit the following information with the Human Resources Department:

  • Volunteer Information Sheet
  • Negative TB clearance
  • Emergency Card
  • Volunteer Orientation Handbook

 

Category 2: These volunteers assist on a regular basis, sometimes out of the teacher’s view. This category requires fingerprint clearance as well as other documentation. Category 2 volunteers will not be assigned to a school site until the following information is completed and on file with the Human Resources Department:

  • Volunteer Information Sheet
  • Photo ID
  • Fingerprint clearance
  • Negative TB clearance
  • Emergency Card
  • Volunteer Orientation Handbook

Examples: Adult safety patrol, field trip chaperone (outside teacher’s view), club sponsor, coach, overnight field trip chaperone, student mentors.

Upon request by the volunteer, the cost of fingerprinting clearance for Category 2 volunteers will be reimbursed by the district after 20 hours of service.
