Volunteers & Fingerprinting

School volunteers enable the teachers to provide students with additional instruction and enrichment activities by providing volunteer assistance.  Volunteers are viewed as adult role models to students who can provide new and thoughtful experiences throughout their educational program.  Volunteers can assist in classrooms for special functions, help supervise field trips and after school functions, and drive students to and from school functions.

Parents, students, and community members may volunteer who fulfill the mandatory volunteer requirements established by the Lucia Mar Unified School District.

STEPS TO REQUEST REGISTRATION AS AN APPROVED VOLUNTEER 

  1. Complete a Volunteer Data Form for each school site you wish to volunteer.  The form is valid for the current  school year only
    • Volunteer Data Form (English) can be completed by clicking HERE
    • Volunteer Data Form (Spanish) can be completed by clicking HERE
    • Paper Volunteer Forms are available at the school site.
  2. Submit a Tuberculosis Clearance to the school(s) you are submitting your request to volunteer.  The tuberculosis clearance must be within a six-month period prior to beginning in a volunteer assignment.
  3. Schedule an appointment in Human Resources to be fingerprinted for Lucia Mar and processed by the Department of Justice and FBI.  Calendar to schedule a fingerprint appointment is located at the bottom of this page. (Fingerprint clearances from any other agencies are not accepted.) 
Disclosure:  At this time, the District has limited the number of outside individuals on campuses and will not be utilizing volunteers due to current COVID-19 restrictions and the ongoing guidelines of the county public health department.  Volunteers may register to be on the list for a later date, should restrictions or new guidelines be provided to the school district.  Volunteers may be required to participate in sanitation and hygiene training prior to being approved to volunteer, should the restrictions be eased in the future.  More information will be provided as it becomes available.
FINGERPRINTING
 

Walk-ins are not available.  Due to the volume of calls received all appointments must be made online.

If you have an urgent need to be fingerprinted for a school site/function, please have the school site secretary contact Human Resources for an expedited appointment.

Generally, processing time for fingerprints to clear is 3-5 business days. However, if someone has a prior conviction on his/her record it may take up to 30 days or longer.  All volunteers in any capacity must have all of the prerequisites completed and on file with the Human Resources Office.

Volunteers/Prospective employees who have a felony conviction will not be eligible to serve as a volunteer or be employed.  Volunteers/Prospective employees who are currently on formal or informal probation will not be eligible to serve as a volunteer/employee until the probationary period has been completed.  Parents and/or guardians are not prohibited from being active in their children(s) education; however, they may be limited in volunteer capacities due to prior convictions and/or probationary periods.
