District Volunteer Application

Welcome to the Visalia Unified School District! 


Our District is now using Raptor Technology to approve visitors and volunteers on our campuses. Please use the information provided on our District Website and Volunteer Clearance Matrix to help determine what will be asked of you when checking in at our school sites and what requirements are needed to volunteer. School sites have the right to limit visitors, guests, and volunteers in the interest of safety, impact on learning, and equity. Everyone on our campuses who is not a student or staff member must be approved by a District Administrator or designee to be on site.


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. If you are unable to provide an email address, please use the district’s email address. All information collected on the application will remain confidential and not be shared outside the volunteer program.


Every volunteer must have an approved application on file to volunteer.


As part of the Volunteer Application process, you will need to review the Volunteer Orientation Training Video.  

VUSD encourages all those interested in volunteering to read the information provided on our District Website and Volunteer Clearance Matrix. If you have any questions about the requirements to become a volunteer, please contact volunteer@vusd.org
