Volunteer Requirement Updates

Dear Parents and Caregivers,


In SRVUSD, we continue to prioritize student safety and improve our procedures for processing and clearing employees and volunteers. We are making some enhancements to SRVUSD’s volunteer clearance process via our volunteer management system, Be A Mentor (BAM), effective for the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year. 


We are providing this information to all current SRVUSD parents and caregivers, regardless of whether you have been previously cleared. SRVUSD partners with BAM to allow parents and caregivers to be cleared as school volunteers at the level of their choosing. This includes:

  • Level One: General School Volunteers and Day Field Trip Chaperones

  • Level Two: Field Trip Drivers

  • Level Three: Overnight Chaperones


The following two (2) changes will be part of the approval process for the 2023-24 school year:  


1. Volunteers at all three levels will now be required to provide proof of Tuberculosis (TB) clearance every four (4) years. If you have proof of TB clearance within the last four (4) years, that is acceptable to meet this requirement (reminder, please do not upload this clearance until after June 2nd

    • Please consult directly with your medical provider to find out information about what TB test option is best for you.

    • You can also locate community providers for testing if you don’t have access to your own medical provider.

    • We also encourage you to review more information on Tuberculosis and TB testing from Contra Costa Health Services.

2. Level Three volunteers will now be required to complete Mandated Reporter training annually (takes approximately 40 minutes to complete) and Sexual Harassment training every two (2) years (takes approximately 60 minutes to complete)

    • Training links coming soon!


If you are currently registered in BAM, you will receive an email from them soon prompting you to complete any new requirements, including trainings, prior to the start of next school year. All new requirements must be completed by August 9, 2023. We strongly recommend you begin this process prior to June 30, 2023 (but after June 2nd!), to avoid delays in receiving clearance for the 23-24 school year! Volunteers in the BAM system who have not completed all of the updated requirements by August 9, 2023, will not be allowed to volunteer until they have done so.

We value your support and willingness to volunteer at SRVUSD schools, and we thank you for your shared commitment to the success and safety of all students.
