Proctors must be objective and professional, able to clearly read directions aloud, and follow specific testing procedures. This is the perfect opportunity for future and retired education professionals! Time commitment: 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Support Academic Decathlon.
The OCAD program is uniquely designed to challenge and engage students of all varying academic abilities. Teams are comprised of nine students from each high school - 3 "A" students, 3 "B" students, and 3 "C" students who compete in a series of ten academic events.
If you are interested in being part of this spirited and rigorous event competition, please register above!
Volunteers should be at least 18 years old and a high school graduate. Parents who volunteer will not be placed in the same area as their child. Registered volunteers will be emailed an information packet and map two weeks prior to the event.
It is very important that all volunteers arrive promptly on competition day. If a volunteer becomes unavailable, it is critical that the Project Liaison be contacted prior to the competition day to avoid incomplete judging teams. A missing volunteer can delay the start of the competition for our students. For additional information, please contact Ron Segundo at 714-966-4316 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
