Ready to Volunteer?
Step 1: Complete a TB test or risk assessment. Upload the results to the online volunteer application. You can visit your physician for this assessment, or you can attend one of the courtesy TB Test Clinics sponsored by FCUSD. You can find the list of scheduled clinics here. This TB test or risk assessment must be completed within 60 days of submission to the district (per California Education Code).
Step 2: Complete the online volunteer application. Please carefully read the directions when submitting your information. All documents must be completed before the application can be submitted. The application cannot be saved to complete later.
Step 3: If you are applying to be a Category 2 Volunteer, schedule a livescan fingerprinting appointment for DOJ criminal background clearance. Once you have completed your RAPTOR application, you may make an appointment for a livescan with a third party. You must obtain a FCUSD issued livescan form from the school site. This is REQUIRED regardless if you have had a Livescan done for another district. This cost is not covered by the District. If you have previously had fingerprints processed for FCUSD, you DO NOT need to process them again unless stated otherwise.

Step 4: Check your email for updates from Raptor, our volunteer and visitor management system, regarding the status of your application. If you do not receive any emails, please reach out to your school site contact.

Volunteer applications must be submitted at least 2 weeks before a field trip or event. Otherwise, the application may not be processed in time.
