4 Steps to HV Volunteer Clearance

  1. Listen to Principal Schmidt’s instructional audio file above which includes some rules particular to HV which you should know.
  2. Fill in NMUSD’s Volunteer Clearance Form online. You may select all of the school sites within NMUSD at which you’ll be volunteering (going through this process once for the District).
  3. A tuberculosis screening test is required for any volunteer with regular student contact (i.e. in the classroom). You may use this TB Test Form at NMUSD’s free clinic – or test and obtain a form from your own doctor or maybe an Urgent Care. Turn your TB test results into our School Office. (The Office will mark your test form as attached to your clearance form triggering Classified Personnel within the District to screen the application to determine whether or not any volunteer is a registered sex offender (per Megan’s Law).
  4. You might stop there – but to volunteer on field trips you must also be fingerprinted and receive a criminal background/records clearance through the Department of Justice (DOJ). To go about this you would call NMUSD’s Administrative Assistant at 714.424.5047 to schedule an appointment for paperwork. At the appointment you would then fill out and submit a Request for Live Scan Service Form (obtained there). Then you would go off site for the actual Live Scan – and return your paperwork to NMUSD.

Our School Office keeps a list of who’s passed which level of volunteer clearance. If in doubt go ahead and go through these steps so you’ll be good to go whenever your teacher or the PFO request volunteers or chaperones. The Clearance Form gets filled out annually. The District screens annually per Megan’s Law. TB tests remain ‘good’ for 4 years.
