How to Apply as a School Site Volunteer
Thank you for volunteering your time and joining with us to ensure a safe environment for our students. The Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District welcomes the involvement of families and community members in our schools.
When parents and families get personally involved in education, research has shown that their children do better in school and grow up to be more successful in life.
The Human Resources Department uses Civicore, an online volunteer portal. This web-based system is a one-stop shop for volunteers, making it easier to get approved and stay approved.
- One on-line application for volunteers with students attending one or more schools
- Downloadable forms for drivers and fingerprint clearance
- Annual 'Click and Renew' feature
- Email reminders to renew required documents
(such as TB clearance and vehicle insurance)
Opportunities to Get Involved and Volunteer
Parent Teacher Associations & Parent Teacher Organizations
Each school in the district has a Parent Teacher Association (PTA), Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) or Booster Organization. The primary purpose of a school's Parent Club is to assist teachers and staff in providing a quality educational experience for all students by sponsoring student/parent fundraising events.
There are plenty of opportunities to assist students and staff with programs such as Project Lead The Way (PLTW) engineering program at elementary, middle and high school levels; the Transitional Kindergarten program where you can work with small groups assisting with art projects and activities; and MathCounts which is a middle school math program.
