Volunteering Info

Although there are no formal requirements for being on a parent committee, there are certain OUSD and other requirements regarding volunteering.

Reporting Volunteer Hours

For the Glenview PTA to maintain its non-profit status, all of your volunteer hours need to be accounted for. Please record the hours you spend helping out the school. This includes attending meetings, writing emails, making phone calls, photocopying, chaperoning fieldtrips, working or shopping for an event, and much more. Document your volunteer hours either online or print and return the file.

Field Trip Drivers

If you are interested in serving as a driver on your child's field trips during the school year, you must provide the office with your automobile insurance information and follow California law regarding seat belt and car seat requirements for children. Specifically, each child must wear a seat belt and children 8 years old and under or 80 pounds and under must use a child safety seat. Insurance requirement are full coverage or $100,000/$300,000. Drivers who do not have this level of coverage are not able to drive on trips. No fingerprints are required for a one-day field trip that is not overnight.

Sign-In

Please remember to sign-in/out when you come to school. For obvious safety reasons, every adult who enters the school building or who is on the school grounds while school is in session needs to check in and out at the office and wear a name tag.

Additional OUSD Guidelines

Parents interested in volunteering are to complete a site volunteer form and register at the district office. The school secretary can provide information about this process. All parents who volunteer at Glenview are required by the state of California and OUSD to have the results of a current TB test on file at school. Fingerprinting is required if the volunteer will be working alone with individual or groups of students without supervision of certificated personnel.

To volunteer at Glenview, we ask that you do the following:

1. Fill out the OUSD volunteer paperwork.
2. Provide updated negative TB test results (good for 3 years).
