Members of the community who want to make a difference in the lives of children and offer valuable support to educators are encouraged to apply to become a volunteer with Dysart Unified School District. Volunteers are welcome in all of our schools.
A Dysart volunteer is an individual who has been given a scheduled, pre-arranged activity by a district staff member to assist in one of the district schools. Any person who volunteers more than five (5) hours per year must be fingerprinted. All potential volunteers, including parents of students attending schools within Dysart Unified School District, must complete the following forms and be cleared before they can begin volunteering:
- Volunteer Application
- Volunteer Confidentiality Form
- Emergency Contact Information
- Volunteer Handbook & Orientation Requirement Form
Individuals who are visiting a school do not need to be a registered volunteer. This would include parents who are visiting the school, but not volunteering. All visitors must follow the schools' visitor sign-in procedures.
All volunteers must be fingerprinted. Fingerprint clearance and background checks will be renewed every five (5) years. Badges will reflect the approval and expiration date of the application. Volunteer chaperones on overnight field trips or who serve as volunteer athletic coaches must also be fingerprinted, regardless of the total number of hours volunteered.
Please call 623.876.7875 to set up an appointment to be fingerprinted and ask any questions you may have about the volunteer process. Volunteer fingerprint appointments will be scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Parent Support Organizations
All Booster/PTO/PTA officers or members appointed to a role with financial responsibilities must be approved volunteers in the district. Officers of Parent Organizations may refer to the Parent Support Organization page
for additional information.
Please complete the appropriate application and associated documents if you are interested in volunteering.
