Parent Volunteers

Early and consistent parental involvement helps children do well academically. Parents/guardians and extended family are encouraged and welcomed to become involved in the formal education of their children by volunteering at AES.

A volunteer is any individual who assists at a school site or District office without monetary compensation. This includes parents, community members, interns and in some cases, high school or college students.

Parents/guardians who are unable to volunteer at the school site during the day due to certain circumstances may apply to be an at-home or virtual volunteer, where they can participate in the virtual environment, or may support volunteer activities from their homes. A tiered system of health and safety requirements is provided below for virtual and on-campus volunteers.

FOUR-TIERED VOLUNTEER SYSTEM

The four-tiered volunteer system was developed to assist the school community with identifying the various health and safety requirements, and duties and responsibilities for volunteers. The duties and responsibilities outlined below are only a summary and NOT intended to be all-inclusive.

Once approved from the District, parents will receive an email with a temporary volunteer badge attached to the letter. Please bring the email letter with you to show the main office when signing in until your 2022-2023 badge arrives to the school site. Approval from the District is currently up to 6 weeks.

An official LAUSD volunteer badge will be issued by the district and sent through school mail to the school site within the following weeks.

The temporary and the permanent LAUSD volunteer badges are non-transferable between volunteers or between school and office sites. Badges must be visible while volunteers are providing service on campus.

On-Campus Tier II and Tier III school volunteers are required to sign in and pick-up their LAUSD volunteer badges upon entering the campus. School volunteers are to sign out when they exit the campus and leave their LAUSD volunteer badges at the school at the end of the day.
