New Volunteer Requirements – UPDATED 8/29

All volunteers (including parents and caregivers) must register with the Oakland Ed Fund starting this year.  If you think you are likely to volunteer at any point this year at school or on a field trip, please go to this website as soon as you can and get registered.

NEW INFO AS OF 8/29: If you submitted a TB Risk Assessment Form last year, then you do not need to do that again.  If you submitted a clear TB test, it’s valid for 4 years.  You may check with our office staff to see what we have in our files from previous years.  Here is the risk assessment form: TBCB-Adult-TB-Risk-Assessment-for-schools (1). It needs to be uploaded to the website where you register as a volunteer.

NEW INFO as of 8/29: If you are driving on any field trip, you need to upload TB Clearance or TB Risk Assessment form to the website where you register. You’ll also need to do the livescan fingerprint clearance and bring in up-to-date auto insurance card and a photocopy of your driver’s license, as in the past.

If you are a parent or guardian who will be volunteering at school, all you will need is to register online and provide proof of TB clearance by uploading it to their website.

If you are going to be an overnight chaperone (4th/5th grades take 3-day field trips), they require the TB clearance and live scan fingerprinting.  The Oakland Ed Fund website says that the cost is $36, and they ask you to contact their staff if this presents a problem for you.  They also provide a list of locations where you can get the live scan done.  A PDF of the requirements you will find on the website are below.

Registration:
