Desert Sands's Volunteer in DSUSD

Volunteer in DSUSD

Desert Sands Unified School District is pleased that you have offered to act as a volunteer. The Superintendent has established volunteer procedures to protect the safety of students, staff, parents, and other community members. (Ed Code §49406(f), 35021.1, 35021.2) 

Child Abuse Mandated Reporting

In 2014, Governor Jerry Brown signed AB 1432 (Chapter 797, Statutes of 2014). This new law went into effect on January 1, 2015, and requires California school districts to annually train mandated reporters on their child abuse reporting obligations under the law.

Volunteers: Mandated Reporter Training is an additional "clearance" that needs to be done by all volunteers BEFORE being approved. Although Volunteers are not mandated reporters, it is a requirement of the district to train all volunteers.

Volunteer applications expire on the last day of each school year to ensure this process is completed annually.


Volunteer Rights Descriptions:

Non-Supervisory Rights - may volunteer at the school site; classroom, library, clerical, fundraising, reading programs, school beautification, breakfast/lunch programs, dance chaperones, and special events. **No field trips**

Supervisory Rights (fingerprints required) - includes all the non-supervisory volunteering rights, but also grants you the ability to participate in field trips, tutoring, and coaching/choir.

Walk-On Coach Rights (fingerprints required) - specifically for volunteer coaches; however, this will also include all the volunteering rights of a supervisory volunteer.
