“Being There” for Our Children
The Band Boosters are organizing! If you can give
a little of your time, we can really use the help!
You’ll want to get the purple badge to be with us on
field trips. Go to the front office for the paperwork.
(part of this requires a TB test)
We have established a non-profit 501(3)c. This
allows us to receive tax deductible contributions
and solicit funds from corporations, etc.
Booster organizations have
helped bands obtain the
funding that the state cannot
provide. It has become more
difficult over the years to meet
all the needs of a vibrant music
program. A booster
organization really helps.
Become a Band Booster!
Parents are not to be seen nor
actually our students need our
adult influence in their lives in
positive ways. The band trips
provide a great opportunity for
family interaction. Come along!

How to Volunteer at LEUSD
Volunteer applications may be picked up at each school site or
printed from this web page through links below.
Volunteering is a privilege and a service that teachers and staff truly
appreciate. All volunteers must however, have a helpful task to
perform under the direct or indirect supervision of a District
employee. Volunteer ID badges should be worn at all times a person
All volunteers (except current employees and substitute employees)
must be processed for an "A" red badge first. Current employees and
substitute employees need only fill out an Intent to Renew Form* to
register as a Volunteer "B" (purple badge) at their child’s school.
Neither a red-A nor purple-B volunteer badge gives a volunteer
permission to hang out with their student during meals or visit with
other adults while on campus. Un-enrolled siblings/children of
volunteers or employees are not permitted in the classroom during
the school day (instructional time).

form here at the District office for fingerprint services through
another vendor (anticipated cost of $42 - $52; prices vary by
location). Fingerprint clearance is specific to each agency and
cannot be “shared.” Fingerprint clearance only has to be done
once and does not have to be re-done for as long as an
applicant continues as a volunteer with LEUSD.
Fingerprint results will be sent to our District Office (allow
approximately 2 weeks).
You will receive a phone call to come and pick up your
purple "B" badge when approved and ready. Please bring red
badge to trade for purple badge.
* Renewal Process
To renew your badge you must fill out an Intent to Renew form at the
beginning of every school year. Intent to Renew forms may be used
only by those who are already registered volunteers or current LEUSD
The Intent to Renew form requires a current year teacher and
principal signature. This form can be obtained at any school office or
through the link above.
The school site will send the completed signed form to Safety & Risk
Services to update the records. Once processed the school site
personnel can check a master database for currently registered
volunteers. New badges will not be issued every school year. Please
continue to use the original badge.
Safety & Risk Services will replace any lost or broken volunteer
badges at no charge. Renewal volunteer applicants are required by
law to update their TB tests every four years
