Special BCE Bearmail - New Requirements for Volunteers

September 19, 2016

Dear BCE Volunteers,

We wanted to follow up from last Friday's Bearmail which included Dr Bruton's letter about new volunteer requirements.  We understand that you may have already started to volunteer in the classroom or drive on field trips.  If you plan to volunteer after November 1, 2016, you must have completed the new paperwork and fingerprinting and/or TB testing requirements.  You can pick up paperwork in the BCE office and once completed, turn in all the documentation to the BCE office or the HR department at the SLVUSD office in Ben Lomond by October 21, 2016.  Paperwork turned in after this date will delay the start of when you may volunteer again for SLVUSD.  Please note that most fingerprints take less than a week to clear, but sometimes take over 30 days.

To see the definitions of different levels and requirements of volunteers, please click here.

In order to make this process as easy as possible for our volunteers, a School Nurse will be available on designated Volunteer Sign-up Days (see below) in September and October to conduct free TB Risk Assessment Screenings.  Representatives from the HR department will also be available on these days to process Live Scan fingerprint forms for you to take to the County Office of Education.  Please bring your state issued photo ID to the sign-up day.

Volunteer Sign-Up Days

BCE:  Thursday, September 22 from 2 pm - 4 pm in the staff room or Thursday, October 6 from 8 am - 10 am in the staff room.
