Online Application – submitted by prospective volunteer
Any person interested in participating in a school’s volunteer program, including continuing volunteers, prospective virtual volunteers, prospective on-campus volunteers, LAUSD employees, community members and interns, must complete the online volunteer application on the School Volunteer Management System.
If a person does not have access to the necessary technology to complete the online volunteer application, the school will designate an employee to assist in completing and submitting the online application on the person’s behalf. Volunteers serving at more than one LAUSD school must have an approved online application for each school before they can begin service.
As of Spring 2021, a waiver of liability is required to participate in on-campus volunteering in the Los Angeles Unified School District School Volunteer Program, showing agreement to the terms and release of liability.
Once the online volunteer application is completed and submitted electronically, both the application may be approved or denied by the site principal or the principal’s designee.
- Select “I am a LAUSD parent/guardian” or “I am a LAUSD community member.”
- Click on “Register for a LAUSD Parent/Guardian Account.” Once on the LAUSD Parent/Guardian Account registration site, a prospective volunteer will be required to enter their name and a valid email account. Prospective volunteers will receive an email to complete the registration process, including the creation of an account password.
ONLINE APPLICATION SUBMISSION
Once the application is completed, the application must be printed, signed, and submitted to the school along with a signed Volunteer Commitment Form, Tuberculosis (TB) Test Clearance, AND Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination. The school must review (ensure required fields are completed).

PROOF OF COVID-19 VACCINATION
All Volunteers must provide proof of COVID-19 Vaccination. Please upload to the Daily Pass and submit a copy with your application to the main office. Incomplete volunteer applications, e.g., those missing a District approved COVID-19 vaccination upload, will be deactivated after 45 calendar days. The applicant and the school will be notified prior to deactivation.
TUBERCULOSIS (TB) CLEARANCE
Volunteers must submit clearance of TB prior to starting volunteer service. Clearance for TB is valid for up to 60 days prior to service for new volunteers and period of up to four (4) years for continuing volunteers.
All prospective volunteers are required to have the TB Risk Assessment Questionnaire administered by a licensed health care provider. If there are no risk factors identified, a Certificate of Completion is provided by the health care provider for clearance, and the prospective volunteer must submit a copy of this to the school or office.
Continuing volunteers with TB clearance must repeat the TB clearance certification every four (4) years.
For additional questions regarding TB requirements for LAUSD volunteer applicants, contact LAUSD Nursing Services (213) 202-7580.
MEGAN'S LAW/SEX OFFENDER CLEARANCE
Any volunteer applicant whose name appears on the Megan’s Law online database is prohibited from serving as a District office volunteer and as an on-campus school volunteer in any capacity for any length of time, including for one-time activities.
ACCESSING THE DAILY PASS TO GENERATE QR CODES AND UPLOAD PROOF OF COVID-19 VACCINATION
Use your Volunteer Management System email and password to connect to the LAUSD Daily Pass. Here, you can generate a QR code to enter the campus, schedule a COVID-19 test, view COVID-19 test results from LAUSD mobile and regional sites, upload an external negative COVID-19 test result, schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment and upload proof of full COVID-19 vaccination. The first time you link your Volunteer Management System email and password to the Daily Pass you will be asked to create a profile, however, after the initial registration you will simply need to sign-in each time to access the site.
Is a COVID-19 vaccination a requirement to volunteer ON-CAMPUS?
Yes, all on-campus volunteers must upload proof of full COVID-19 vaccination and have the documentation approved by the District in the LAUSD Daily Pass. “Fully-vaccinated” refers to an individual who has received the first and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine (or, in the case of Johnson & Johnson, the single required dose) and has completed the two-week period that follows to ensure maximum immunity.
COVID-19 vaccination requirements may change depending on local, state, and federal guidance and District policy. When applying, all on-campus volunteer candidates will be asked to accept a liability waiver in the event they contract COVID-19. To find a COVID-19 vaccination location at a Los Angeles Unified site, schedule your COVID-19 vaccination through the Daily Pass or on the LAUSD Safe Steps to Safe Schools website.
What other clearances are necessary to volunteer ON-CAMPUS?
On-campus volunteers, in addition to being cleared through the online CA Megan’s Law website, will need to have a valid Tuberculosis (TB) clearance date and must submit a Daily Pass each day they will be on campus. For assistance, contact your school site or the Los Angeles Unified Family Hotline at 213-443-1300.
