District Volunteer Application

Dear Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD) Volunteer, 

 

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer. A volunteer is a parent, community member or other adult who assists at a school site or program on a regular or semi-regular basis before, during or after school hours. The District recognizes and values the variety of services you provide to our schools. Your participation enhances the overall program for our students. 

 

There are four levels of volunteers:

Level 1:  Non-classroom volunteers with more than limited contact with students who are not always directly supervised by a certificated employee (volunteer coaches, mentors, and paraprofessional counselors, overnight fieldtrip volunteers, etc.) shall submit:

  1. Proof of full vaccination*
  2. A Tuberculosis (TB) assessment/test**
  3. Fingerprints for a criminal background/records clearance prior to working with students (use existing forms and same process for all NMUSD employees). 

 

NOTE: Volunteer coaches must also meet other screening requirements, including, but not limited to current CPR, First Aid certification, Concussion Certificate, and other requirements as noted in the NMUSD Coaching Certification Handbook.

 

Level 2:  All classroom volunteers with either limited or more than limited contact with students but who are usually supervised at all times by a certificated employee (field trip chaperons, classroom helpers, etc.) are required to:

  1. Submit proof of full vaccination*
  2. Provide a Tuberculosis (TB) assessment/test**
  3. Undergo clearance (screened) through the Megan’s Law website by Classified Personnel to determine whether or not the volunteer is a registered sex offender. 

 

Level 3:  Non-classroom volunteers with either limited or more than limited contact with students but who are usually supervised at all times by a certificated employee (office helpers, health office helpers, library/media center helpers) are required to:

  1. Submit proof of full vaccination*
  2. Provide a Tuberculosis (TB) assessment/test**
  3. Undergo clearance (screened) through the Megan’s Law website by Classified Personnel to determine whether or not the volunteer is a registered sex offender. 

Level 4:  Community members who make a brief presentation to students at the school in the presence of a current NMUSD employee (presentation for career day, school assembly, or one-time presentation in classroom), or who serve in an activity in which there will be no contact with students (Bingo night) are required to:

  1. Provide proof of full vaccination*

NOTE: All Preschool Volunteers regardless of level are also required to provide:

   > A valid identification card

   > A pertussis or whooping cough vaccine (Tdap) date

   > A measles vaccine (MMR)

   > An influenza vaccine (Flu shot) - Optional

 

As provided in Education Code 45125.1(c), the determination of what constitutes limited contact will be determined by the District based upon the totality of circumstances, including factors such as the length of time the volunteers will be on the school grounds, whether students will be in proximity with the site where the volunteers will be working, and whether the volunteers will be working by themselves or with others.

 

 *Fully vaccinated:

  Pfizer and Moderna: two weeks after second dose, Johnson and Johnson: two weeks after dose)

 **Tuberculosis (TB) Test:

   TB tests/assessments must completed within the last 60 days.   
   The following locations for 
TB assessment/skin testing throughout the year are suggested:

  1. Private physician, health insurance provider, or local walk-in clinic.
  2. HOPE Clinic, BESST Center, 2045 Meyer Place, Costa Mesa – free TB assessment/skin tests for NMUSD classroom volunteers. Appointments are a must – call (949) 515- 6725 for an appointment. Please note that if the TB skin test is positive, it is the volunteer’s responsibility to seek follow-up care with a medical provider who will order a chest x-ray and will deem if other treatment is necessary. It is not the responsibility of Newport-Mesa Unified School District to manage follow-up after receiving a positive TB skin test from NMUSD or cover costs for any follow-up care.

 

It is very important that the information you enter on the application matches your government issued identification card including your full legal name. It is important that you provide a valid email address so you can be notified as to the status of your application and for future communication. All information collected on the application will remain confidential and not be shared outside the volunteer program.
