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.

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:
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.

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