OUSD Volunteer Screening

Step 1: Register with the Oakland Ed Fund (OEF) by filling out the Volunteer Questionnaire for Parents and Guardians. If you plan to drive on field trips now or in the future, please select “Field Trip Chaperone (Driving students in my car).” There are fewer requirements for supervised (e.g., in class only) than unsupervised (e.g., field trip driver) volunteers. See Volunteer Options and Checklists for more info.

Step 2: Follow instructions in confirmation email from OEF, which will include submitting the items to osv@oaklandedfund.org, based on level of clearance required:

  • Liability waiver
  • Proof of COVID vaccination and waiver
  • TB clearance (see step 3)*
  • Livescan fingerprints (see step 4)**
  • Photo for ID badge

Step 3: TB clearance can be obtained by submitting:

  • Proof of a negative TB test, OR
  • TB Risk Assessment Form signed by a healthcare provider. *There will be Hillcrest parent-doctors on site at the Hillcrest Parent Orientation on Sunday, September 11th to sign completed forms

Step 4: After you register with OEF, you will receive a Request for Livescan Service form pre-filled with the proper DOJ codes, which you will need to take with you when you get fingerprinted. You can have your fingerprints done at any licensed Live Scan Location. **There will be a mobile fingerprinting service on-site at the Hillcrest Parent Orientation on Sunday, September 11th. To be fingerprinted, please bring:

  • Completed Livescan form;
  • Photo ID (Driver's License or DMV State ID); and
  • Livescan/DOJ fee ($42). The preferred method of payments are cash, Venmo, or check.
