All parents and guardians of Performing Arts students are welcome and encouraged to volunteer at Leigh Performing Art’s activities and events. Volunteering is a great way to connect with your high school student, and also helps support Leigh’s award winning performing arts programs. Without volunteer support, our programs would not have the success they’ve had to date.
There are two classifications of volunteers:
Level I – can work with students without a certified professional present (i.e., credential teacher or staff)
Level 2 – can only work with students when a certified professional is present
Anyone who volunteers with students on a consistent basis is considered a Level 1 volunteer and should get cleared by the District. Activities such as helping back stage for the Fall Play, working the First Aid station for marching band, or chaperoning a trip qualify as Level 1.
Level 2 activities include things like selling tickets at the Haunted House, setting up the Rummage sale, or selling baked goods at a concert. With these activities interaction with students is either infrequent or under the supervision of a certified professional.
Consider the ways you want to volunteer and take the following actions if you’d like to be cleared as a Level 1 volunteer. Once you are cleared you will not need to repeat the process for 4 years.
Before you begin please provide your name, email, phone number, and expected volunteer duties to Leigh’s Activity Director, letting them know you are starting the process. Once you’ve notified the Activity Director you can complete the following steps in any order.
- Complete the volunteer packet
Complete the packet and either scan and send it to Crystal Adams via email (email@example.com), or take it in person to the district office. Please include a copy of your ID with the packet.
- Get fingerprinted
Complete the one page form to fill out. Call and make an appointment with the Moreland District office. Contact either Judy Ross at (408) 874-2944 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The office is located at 4711 W Campbell Ave, San Jose, CA 95130. Please bring your ID with you. The District will pay for the fingerprinting.
- Submit evidence of a current negative TB test
This can be done with your own doctor, or you can get one completed by the district. If you choose to do the test through the District there is not cost to you. If you have recently done a TB test contact the District office to see if they will accept that test or if you need to take a new one.
Thank you for your support in volunteering with PAPA in staying in compliance with the District policy.
