Visiting Center CampusWhat's the difference between an observer, visitors, and volunteers??An observer is spending a minimal (up to 30 mins) approved time by your child's teacher and Principal in a single location; classroom, playground, or MPR. During this time a parent or guardian will be allowed to observe their child during teaching or playtime. You must complete the Center Elementary Classroom Observation Request and have approval before coming to Center campus.Vistors are families and friends coming to a school-wide assembly, afterschool PTA or family-friendly event. If the event or assembly is during the school day, visitors will need to sign in at the office. Visiting during dances or student-only events is prohibited.
Volunteers are parents or relatives that have completed the volunteer clearance process to safely assist teachers or PTA, on Center’s campus or on TUSD approved field trips. You must be cleared by our district system, CERVIS which does not share or utilize previous data from outside sources such as neighboring districts, or previous jobs that required background clearances. This process is really simple, can be done online. Unfortunately there is no exceptions to this process; this is for the safety of the students. This process can take up to a week so please plan accordingly for helping out in the classrooms, field trips, etc.
- Examples of volunteering; LEVEL 1 – Helping on Center’s campus with direct and constant supervision of a TUSD employee. Which includes helping the teacher with classwork or student’s in class, or working in any area of our campus with school equipment. LEVEL 2 (requires fingerprinting*) – Helping out in classrooms where you will be or might be alone with students; exp. Walking students up and down halls to and from classrooms for picture day, etc., or having a group of students for chaperoning during field trips.
