The LGSUHSD Board of Trustees recognizes and appreciates that volunteer assistance in schools significantly enriches the educational program, and strengthens a school’s relationship with the community. 

The Board encourages parents/guardians and other members of the community to share their time, knowledge and abilities with students. In compliance with California Education Code 35021, the Los Gatos Saratoga Union High School District requires school volunteers to be screened and authorized to volunteer.  

Volunteers who may be in contact with students outside the presence of certificated staff (however briefly) must arrange for a CA Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation fingerprint submission through Human Resources prior to volunteering. Also, volunteers who will have frequent or prolonged contact with students must be tuberculosis (TB) tested and cleared.These requirements are in place given an abundance of caution for student safety and well-being.

Please take a few moments to review the volunteer packet below. The packet covers the process, instructions, frequently asked questions, and the forms needed to volunteer.  If you have specific questions that cannot be answered through the FAQ, please email Patricia Zepeda, HR Assistant. pzepeda@lgsuhsd.org.
