Volunteering

Glenview is a great school because the Principal, certificated and classified staff, parents and students work together to create a community that values the importance of education. We are all committed to ensuring that each and every child achieves academic success. You are encouraged to volunteer for various tasks and activities around the school in any capacity that matches skills, interests, and schedule. Tutoring and assistance with other small jobs is also welcomed within the classroom.

Room Parenting & Classroom Volunteers
This program supports our wonderful teachers to do what they do best: teach and inspire our kids! Room Parents facilitate teacher-parent-communication and coordinate volunteers to help in the classroom, set up online communication, organize class parties and field trips, and much more. We need our teachers and they need us!

Volunteering Outside the Classroom
The Glenview PTA and its numerous committees organize amazing events and vital fundraising which provide our students with academic, artistic and social enrichment. All of these programs depend on family involvement for their success. Please consider how you might contribute to our efforts by volunteering for the PTA or joining a committee. Your time, skills and interests are valuable assets to our children's love of school and learning.

Reporting Volunteer Hours
In order 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 by clicking on the button below or print and return the attached 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.

In order to volunteer at Glenview we ask that you do the following:
  1. Fill out the OUSD volunteer paperwork located at www.ousd.k12.ca.us-Be a Mentor 
  2. Provide updated negative TB test results (good for 3 years)
