Does every volunteer require fingerprint clearance?

Posted by:

Definitely not!

The vast majority of volunteers work under the close supervision of a PUSD certificated staff member. For example: chaperoning a field trip, helping in a classroom or library, tutoring students in the back of the classroom or in the art, drama or science rooms. 

Only a few volunteers who take on the considerable responsibility of working with students outside the supervision of Certificated Staff are authorized by school administrators for fingerprinting.
