Volunteering at Chaparral

We are so thankful for our parent volunteers and we welcome you to join our fantastic volunteer team!
Before you volunteer on campus (in any capacity) or attend a field trip, you must complete a Megan's Law background check, submit a signed Code of Conduct, give us the results from a current, negative TB test.
Please see below for more specific information regarding the required forms.

Megan's Law Form

Submit this form in person, with your Driver's License, to the main office at Chaparral.  Please note that it takes approximately two weeks to process this application; we encourage you to submit this well in advance of any field trips to ensure time to complete the background check.  

Code of Conduct

Please read, sign, and submit to the main office when you drop off your Megan's Law paperwork.

Megan's Law Level II Volunteer

Level II Volunteers
A Level II clearance is required for volunteers that are not being supervised by a staff member and are working alone with a group of students or one-on-one with a student.  Volunteers need to be fingerprinted to be at this Level. The teacher/staff member will determine if  Level II clearance is required.
  1. Obtain the Level II approval paperwork from the school office.
  2. The Level II approval form must be taken to the District Office receptionists ONLY on: Tuesdays 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., Thursdays 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
  3. Please take $20 cash or check made out to PUSD with you to the District Office.  This is the volunteer’s payment portion. The District pays the remainder of associated costs.
