LAUSD Volunteer Application Process

LAUSD Volunteer Application Process

The Los Angeles Unified welcomes prospective parent and community volunteers to the 2023-2024 school year. We extend gratitude for the service provided to our students, classrooms, campuses, and offices. To offer volunteers with options, the District will continue to offer virtual and on-campus volunteer opportunities. We invite you to visit the Office of Student, Family, and Community Engagement at https://www.lausd.org/volunteer to learn more about volunteering.
School Volunteer Program Requirements:

  • Complete/Submit the LAUSD online Volunteer Application (print, sign, and submit to Community Representative)
  • Complete/Sign Volunteer Commitment Form
  • Tuberculosis (TB) Test Clearance (completed within 60 days of submitting online volunteer application)
Volunteer Application Process

  • Any person interested in participating in a school’s volunteer program, including continuing volunteers, prospective virtual volunteers, prospective on-campus volunteers, LAUSD employees, community members and interns, must complete the online volunteer application in the School Volunteer Management System.
  • A volunteer can access the online application at https://volunteerapp.lausd.net.
  • If a person does not have access to the necessary technology to complete the online volunteer application, the school will designate an employee to assist in completing and submitting the online application with the person. Volunteers serving at more than one LAUSD school must have an approved online application for each school before they can begin service.
  • Tuberculosis clearance, including a screening or negative test result, is to be provided to the school site before the campus begins the processing of the application. The form, can be provided to a medical provider.
  • A waiver of liability is required to participate in on-campus volunteering in the LAUSD School Volunteer Program, showing agreement with the terms and release of liability. This is completed directly on the application.
  • Once the online volunteer application is completed and submitted electronically, the application may be approved or denied by the site principal or the principal’s designee. 
  • The Office of Student, Family and Community Engagement provides a final review before approving the application.

School Site Application Review Process

For Tier II and III volunteers, the school/office must review the application to ensure all required fields are completed.  Next, the school/office must approve or deny the online application for all individuals applying to become volunteers. The school principal/approver must verify and approve that the prospective volunteer has met all requirements, including:

  • Completed the application which is to be kept on file at the school site.
  • Electronically signed the application and Volunteer Commitment Form 
  • Passed Megan’s Law clearance through https://www.meganslaw.ca.gov. This step is required and completed by the school site before the application is approved.
  • Registered Tuberculosis clearance, which is populated by review of the screening or test results provided by the volunteer.
  • Submitted fingerprinting (For Tier III volunteers)
