Dear Community Families,

The new school year is fully underway and I would like to thank you for your continued support.  Parent involvement is one of the factors that allow Community to provide our students with such a wonderful learning environment. 

We greatly appreciate all of our volunteers who provide assistance during the school day and those that provide support at home after hours. As of July 1, 2016, LAUSD updated the district’s volunteer policy which now requires annual approval and processing by the school site. Information about school volunteers can be found at https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/10443.

There are different types of school volunteers and the requirements vary. Please click here LAUSD VOLUNTEER TIERS.docx to determine if you are a Tier I Volunteer (single event volunteer), a Tier II Volunteer (Room Parent, field trip chaperone, etc.), or a Tier III Volunteer (overnight field trip chaperone).

All school volunteers will need to complete the on-line volunteer application on the LAUSD website (https://volunteerapp.lausd.net).   Please follow the directions provided on the website and deliver a copy of the application, the Volunteer Commitment Form, required for all volunteers. Tier II and Tier III volunteers must also deliver TB results clearance to our main office.  TB clearance can be provided by a physician by a skin test or Tuberculosis Risk Assessment. If you were a district approved volunteer last year, your TB results are valid for 4 years. If you were fingerprinted last year (Tier III volunteers), you do not need to update that as long as you do not have a two-year lapse in renewing your yearly Volunteer Application and Volunteer Commitment form.

Once the applications have been reviewed and approved at the school site, the application will be forwarded to the district’s volunteer office for final approval. Our school staff will contact applicants when district approval is received. 

If you have questions about volunteering or the volunteer application process, please contact Kathryn at 310-476-2281.

Again, thank you for all your support,

Kathryn
