OUSD Volunteer Clearance Process

Volunteer requirements for in classroom volunteers are set by the OUSD Board of Directors, and volunteer clearance is processed by the Oakland Public Education Fund, learn more by reading their Clearance Requirements document (Requisitos para Acreditación).  Start by signing up to volunteer through the Oakland Ed Fund. To make it easier for parents to complete the process, the PPTG hosts a livescan technician at one of the first garden days of the year. Watch Konstella to sign up for an appointment.

For all parent and community volunteers:

Additionally, for field-trip drivers ONLY:

Turn these documents in to Peralta:

  1. Declaration of Driver Form

  2. Proof of Sufficient Insurance (photocopy/printout of your insurance coverage)

  3. Valid ID (photocopy of your drivers' license)

These above documents usually are requested directly by your child's teacher, from only those who are driving. You can fill them out and turn them in back to the teacher, or to the office.
