Volunteer fingerprint clearances are good for three (3) years and can be obtained by signing up here. If you have a level one fingerprint clearance card, please email a copy of your card to the front desk at: firstname.lastname@example.org and it can added to the clearance list.
We request a $20.00 donation for the fee charged by the Arizona Department of Safety to run the background check.
Fingerprint clearance is required for all volunteer opportunities on campus where an adult is to be alone with students, including, but not limited to reading groups, lunch duty, chaperoning field trips, and assisting with classroom celebrations.
Once your fingerprint clearance has been confirmed, your volunteer badge will be available for check-out at the front office. Upon arrival to campus, please check in at the front desk by signing in and checking out your badge from the front desk prior to heading to your volunteer location. All badges are to be checked back in to the office upon sign-out. If you are chaperoning a field trip and are meeting your group at an offsite location, your badge will be delivered to the classroom teacher for your use during the field trip. Please make sure to return it to your teacher to be returned to the front desk.
Please contact the front desk if you have any questions or concerns regarding volunteering on our campus or to confirm your fingerprint status. Thank you so much for your dedication to our community!
