Remember: Volunteers MUST check in at the front office and wear a volunteer badge while at the school. This policy ensures the safety of your children.

Volunteers should review the guidelines and expectations outlined in the Volunteer Handbook. If you have any questions about volunteering, please ask your classroom teacher or inquire in the school office.

Volunteer Requirements:
1. Fingerprint Scanning

Parents should print or obtain a fingerprint form (from the office) specific to UDA. The livescan facility will need the ORI code from the form, specific to UDA’s fingerprint clearinghouse, which is A1270. LiveScan services are available on a walk in or appointment basis at the San Diego County Office of Education's facility in San Marcos or Linda Vista. ID is required for the livescan, and payment must be submitted by money order or cashier's check payable to San Diego County of Education (SDCOE).

2. Tuberculosis (TB) Testing

The San Diego Unified School District requires all individuals who are in contact with school children be tested and found to be free of tuberculosis. A tuberculin test is valid for four years, and the test may be given by your physician or select pharmacies. Many of the CVS Minute Clinics offer them for approximately $40.
3. Present a form of current government-issued photo identification (driver’s license, passport, military ID, other government identification).
4. Complete and submit for approval the UDA Volunteer Application.

Field Trip Driver Requirements:

In addition to the above requirements, to become a field trip driver for UDA class trips, a valid driver’s license, current registration, and vehicle insurance must be submitted to the UDA office. Additionally, please ensure that students have a proper car or booster seat, if applicable.
