Laguna Beach Unified School District recognizes and appreciates volunteer assistance in schools. Volunteers can significantly enrich the educational program and strengthen a school’s relationship with the community.
The District encourages parents/guardians and other members of the community to share their time, knowledge and abilities with students. ;The Board, in compliance with California Education Code 35021 and Board Policy 1240, requires school volunteers to be screened and authorized to volunteer.
Volunteers who may be in contact with students outside the presence of certificated staff, however briefly, are called Tier II Volunteers, and must obtain California Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation fingerprint submission prior to volunteering. Also, volunteers who will have frequent or prolonged contact with students provide evidence they are free from tuberculosis (TB). These requirements are in place given an abundance of caution for student safety and well-being.
Once cleared, Tier II volunteers do not need to go through the process again as long as their child and siblings are continuously enrolled in LBUSD.
Tier II volunteers may obtain Live Scan fingerprint clearance at the District’s approved contractor, Secure Live Scan in Aliso Viejo, or at any other of the following locations. Please contact the district at (949) 497-7700, ext. 5211 for the appropriate form before obtaining Live Scan fingerprint services. Also, a Tuberculosis Risk Assessment may be required for volunteers who will have prolonged exposure to students. Please contact your school office to determine whether or not you need the assessment.
