Are field trip chaperones required to get clearance?

Posted by:

All field trip chaperones are required to get checked on the MEGAN'S LAW database, which is done by the Community Assistant/Volunteer Coordinator at the school site.

The majority of chaperones for day field trips are NOT required to get fingerprint clearance (Level 2).  Level 1 Volunteer Clearance is sufficient for a daytime Field Trip as long as the volunteer is supervised by a teacher at all times. 

Volunteers attending an overnight field trip are required to obtain child safety clearance via DOJ/FBI background checks done by fingerprint clearance (Level 2). In these very limited cases, the community assistant/volunteer coordinator OR principal will authorize volunteers for fingerprinting via a closed google form managed by the PUSD Family Resource Center.  Once we have the authorization from the school site we will contact the volunteer to set up an appointment.  

No appointments can be scheduled without prior authorization from the school site via the closed google form.  We do not take walk-ins for LiveScans.  You must have an appointment set up with the Family Resource Staff before coming in for a LiveScan for Level 2 Clearance.
