Volunteer Information

Welcome to the BRSSD Volunteer Webpage!

 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering.  In the Spring of 2016, the Board of Trustees authorized a new volunteer clearance process, which requires volunteers who may be alone with students to have fingerprint clearance with the Department of Justice. The benefit of this new system is that your fingerprint clearance will be valid for your entire time in Belmont-Redwood Shores--you only have to be fingerprinted once.  As we continue to update our volunteer database, we ask all prospective volunteers to complete the volunteer form below.
