We love volunteers at our school sites because they contribute so much time and energy to the students and staff. Here are a few things for volunteers to keep in mind.
TB Testing: Each volunteer must have a current TB test on file with the school site office. PUSD offers TB clinics to our volunteers. Volunteers need proof from their school sites they are indeed volunteers. Take this proof with you to the clinic. Click HERE for the schedule.
Megan’s Law Background Check: Each volunteer must have a current Megan’s Law Background Check on file with the specific school site office. Volunteers need only fill out one Megan's Law form with the schools listed. Volunteers only need to fill out the Megan’s Law form and be cleared once. You do not need to fill out a new form for each school year. If you have volunteered at another school in PUSD, and wish to make a school site change -- please notify the office and fill out the Transfer Request for Megan's Law.
Volunteer Code of Conduct: Volunteers must have a Volunteer Code of Conduct form on file at each site they volunteer at.
RETIREES: Seniors Helping Our Kids (SHOK) is an all-volunteer organization that trains and places nearly 200 retirees a year in PUSD schools. Most serve as one-on-one reading tutors for children in grade 1-3, following the OASIS Tutoring program. Others are classroom or library helpers. If you are a retiree and interested in this opportunity, check out http://www.SHOKprogram.org. They will help you get all the paperwork together to participate as a volunteer.
If you plan to drive on a field trip: You will need to fill out this form: Private Vehicle Transportation for Student's off-site Student Experience. (pdf file)
PLEASE NOTE: Individuals will not be allowed to volunteer until the office has received notice of the Megan's Law clearance and results of the TB test.
When You Come To Volunteer Please Sign In & Out: All volunteers at each of our school sites are required to sign in at the office and put on a nametag. You must do this each day you volunteer. This helps us identify people on our campus and helps keep our kids safe. Thank you for remembering to do this!
