If you would like to become a cleared volunteer, which allows you to have the opportunity to volunteer on campus or chaperone on a field trip, you must complete the volunteer application process outlined below:
Step 1: Print, complete, sign and return the Parent Handbook and Volunteer Application (one time only).
Step 2: Print the Request for Live Scan Services (one time only) form and take to an approved Live Scan Fingerprinting Agency. As a public school, TPS is required by law to participate in the Department of Justice Live Scan digital fingerprint submission program. For the protection of our students, we require both Department of Justice and FBI results. The cost of a live scan is typically $75-$80. Any fees accrued for Live Scan services are the responsibility of the volunteer and are not reimbursable by TPS. (Live Scans are required one-time only) – PLEASE NOTE – TPS has no control over the amount of time it may take to receive Live Scan results from the Department of Justice. It has taken anywhere from a day to several weeks.
Live scan must be conducted at a state approved Live Scan Fingerprinting Agency. Examples of places who offer live scan services are: police stations; UPS Stores and Postal Annex locations; Riverside County Office of Education (Murrieta Site ).
Step 3: Submit a copy or original of a current TB clearance or a completed “Adult TB Assessment Questionnaire“ (please read more about this option by clicking on the link. Your initial TB test or assessment questionnaire must be dated within 4 years, however TB clearances expire on the 4-year date of when your test was conducted. You will need to provide a new clearance at that time.
Step 4: Submit a copy of a valid driver’s license or California identification card.
Step 5: Submit all the required forms and documentation to the TPS School Office.
IMPORTANT: Once your paperwork has been received and TPS receives the live scan results from the California Department of Justice, you will receive an official “Volunteer Status” email acknowledging your cleared status. YOU ARE ONLY CONSIDERED A CLEARED VOLUNTEER ONCE YOU HAVE RECEIVED THE CLEARANCE EMAIL FROM TPS. ONCE YOU ARE CLEARED, CLEARANCES REMAIN VALID (UNLESS REVOKED) UNTIL THE TIME YOUR TB EXPIRES (ON THE 4-YEAR DATE OF WHEN YOUR LAST TEST WAS CONDUCTED) AT WHICH TIME YOU WILL NEED TO SUBMIT A NEW TB CLEARANCE.
