Classroom Volunteers

Classroom Volunteers – General Process

1)    Fill out LAUSD Parent Volunteer form at the LAUSD website.

The link below takes you to the LAUSD volunteer application page:

https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/10443

Click on https://volunteerapp.lausd.net.  Fill out the volunteer commitment form, as well, which has a link on that same page. If you need your student’s ID to complete the application, this may be obtained via the school office or your student’s progress report card.

2)    Once you fill out the online volunteer application, submit it, print it out, and bring the print out to Stella in the Beckford school office.

Stella will then call LAUSD to make an appointment for fingerprinting at the LAUSD volunteer processing office (you need an appointment). Fingerprinting for volunteering at LAUSD schools must be done at an LAUSD facility. The cost for fingerprinting is $56.00, with a money order or cashier’s check made payable to “LAUSD.” This cost is not reimbursable through LAUSD or the school.

3)    At fingerprinting appointment, you will need:

·        Driver’s License/ID

·        Social Security Card (name must match the ID name)

·        The Money Order or Cashier’s Check for $56.00, made payable to LAUSD. If you go get the money order from your bank, you may be able to get one free of charge, based on the type of account you have with the bank.

The LAUSD fingerprinting place is at a school in Reseda; the address is provided below (for mapping purposes). Procure the money order/cashier’s check for the amount of $56.00, and bring that with driver’s license and social security card to appointment.  The appointment will take about 15-20 minutes, including filling out a form on site.

4)    Someone from Beckford, most likely Stella, will let you know your clearance, which will lead to you getting the LAUSD volunteer badge. You won’t get a receipt from LAUSD, but if you get a written clearance notice from either LAUSD or Stella, or make a copy of your badge, you may be able to submit a request to PTA for partial reimbursement for the cost of fingerprinting.

The fingerprinting process (and cost) only needs to occur once: it is good for classroom volunteering the rest of your student’s time in the LAUSD education system.
