Volunteering in OVSD
We greatly appreciate your interest in becoming a volunteer in the Ocean View School District. Your time and effort is important to us, because we know that our volunteers make a valuable contribution to the learning environment. In an effort to strengthen campus safety at all of our schools, we are using the Raptor Visitor/Volunteer Management System. Raptor enables us to better screen all visitors and volunteers. We continue to adhere to our Volunteer Policy with the implementation of Raptor.
Thank you in advance for supporting our incredible students and staff!
Classroom Volunteer COVID Protocol
February 1, 2022 Update: With new COVID-19 cases declining among our staff and students, we are continuing with our commitment to resume volunteers and visitors on our campuses starting February 2, 2022.
Parents and visitors are welcome in outdoor locations for school events. Volunteers in classrooms will be permitted on a limited basis according to the information that follows. Up to three adults may be present in the classroom at a time (Special Day Classes are exempt), to provide small group instruction. This includes teachers and support staff. All adults in the classroom must provide proof of vaccination or a negative PCR COVID-19 test. Unvaccinated staff are required to participate in weekly PCR COVID-19 testing. Unvaccinated volunteers are required to show proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test within the past 72 hours. The negative result will allow the unvaccinated volunteer to work on campus for up to five consecutive days. During small group instruction when in close proximity, adults are required to remain masked whether indoors or outdoors. Classroom preparation/support should occur outside of the presence of students whenever possible. Classroom volunteers may be temporarily paused due to positive COVID-19 cases. All volunteers, regardless of vaccination status, must follow Tier 1 or Tier 2 guidelines.
COVID-19 Testing Options:
• PCR test kits are available in every school office free of charge. Volunteers will need to self-administer and submit their tests to Ambry and then provide proof of a negative test to the school office.
• OVSD will also accept PCR results from any outside agency.
Whether you are a new or current volunteer, you are now required to submit an online volunteer application. Please review the Volunteer Handbook (on the righthand side of this webpage) before applying to help make your volunteer service successful and rewarding.
