District Volunteer Application

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 sometimes after school hours. Your participation enhances the overall program for our students.

The District allows for approved volunteers to be on school campuses. To be considered a Volunteer, please submit an application for review. Once your application has been approved, you will receive an email from our Raptor System indicating you have been cleared to volunteer.

It is recommended that you apply on a PC, as applying on a mobile device may present screen formatting issues and cause your submission to be denied. If applying on a mobile device, please have your phone in landscape mode, so that all text can be accurately displayed.

Please make sure to have ALL your required documents ready to upload BEFORE beginning the application

To provide maximum safety for all NMUSD students and employees, please review the requirements outlined for each level of volunteerism on our District Volunteer Information webpage:

The application will also adapt and prompt you to upload required documents based on the level of volunteer title you select.

Some important reminders:

  • All volunteers are expected to follow COVID-19 safety protocols while on campus. 

  • 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.
  • TB test/assessment results must have a screening date completed within the last 60 days. 
  • It is important that the information you enter on the application matches your government issued identification card. A valid email address is required, so you can be notified of 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.

If you have any questions, please visit our webpage or email syu@nmusd.us.

Thank you,
District Volunteer Coordinator
