Volunteer Application

  • Thank you for your interest in volunteering. For the safety of children, volunteers are required to have an approved background check before spending time in our schools.

    To help streamline compliance with state and school board policies, which require that all volunteers have background checks and knowledge of other board policies -- as well as state-mandated proof of vaccination (or a qualified exemption) -- we are introducing a new all-in-one volunteer application and approval process through our Raptor Visitor Management System.

    Submitting an online application initiates the background check process through the district's Human Resources (HR) department. Once submitted, applicants will receive an email upon approval of your background check and you will be given access through the onsite Raptor System at all schools. Accommodations for obtaining background checks are offered upon request. Volunteers seeking accommodations should contact LOSD HR department

    Please allow up to three weeks to process your approval. Accommodations may take longer.

    Volunteers need to submit only one application for volunteering in all LOSD schools. Applications need to be submitted annually to capture changes in background checks, policies, and/or vaccination requirements.
