    We will begin accepting volunteer applications in August for the 2022-2023 school year.

    3. If your TB test result on file has expired, submit a current negative TB test result (TB test results are good for 4 years).

    NEW VOLUNTEERS

    In order to be cleared, potential volunteers must do the following:

    1. Complete the Category 2 Volunteer Packet and bring it to the Gold Ridge office with proof of current TB clearance and COVID vaccination***. Your application must be approved and SIGNED by the Principal before moving forward with the next steps.
    2. Download a copy of the Volunteer Handbook and read thoroughly.

A Livescan Request Form (available in the Gold Ridge office) must be submitted at the time of scanning to ensure that the background clearance result is forwarded to FCUSD.
