District Volunteer Application

We appreciate your interest in volunteering with the Lake Oswego School District (LOSD). Per Lake Oswego School Board policy, you must have a background check annually before volunteering in our schools for the safety of children. To initiate your background check process, please complete and submit this volunteer application through the secure and confidential Raptor System. You will receive an email once approved to volunteer in LOSD schools. Please allow up to three weeks to process your approval. 


This process is for volunteers who are supervised by district employees. Volunteers with unsupervised student contact require a different background check process through the LOSD Human Resources department. 


The information you enter on the application must match your government-issued identification card, including your full legal name. You must provide your Social Security number to run a background check. All information collected in the Raptor System will remain confidential. A valid email address is necessary for notification of the status of your application. 


If you have any questions about the application, please email parkej@loswego.k12.or.us



John Parke, Safety and Security Administrator, LOSD
