Volunteer Program

Volunteers are a vital resource for the school. Volunteers bring much needed assistance, experience and knowledge. 


Purpose of the School/Office Volunteer Program

  • Assist in classrooms, thereby allowing teachers to attend to students in need of extra help
  • Support school personnel in meeting the needs of students more effectively
  • Strengthen school/home/community relations by engaging parents and community as school volunteers
  • Any person interested in participating in a school’s volunteer program, including continuing volunteers, LAUSD employees, community members and interns, must complete the online volunteer application on the School Volunteer Management System.  A volunteer can access the online registration process and application at

If a person does not have access to the necessary technology to complete the online volunteer application, assistance is available in the school office.  Volunteers serving at more than one LAUSD school must have a completed online application, printed and signed, for each school before they can begin service.

Once the online volunteer application is completed, it should then be submitted electronically.  Both the application and Volunteer Commitment Form should be printed, signed and delivered to the school office.   

The school then confirms and verifies that the volunteer has met all requirements, including:

  • Online application, printed and signed
  • Signed Volunteer Commitment Form
  • Megan’s Law clearance
  • Tuberculosis test clearance
  • Fingerprinting (when applicable)
