Procedures for School Site Volunteers/Chaperones

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Queen Creek Unified School District. We are excited that you want to volunteer with us.

If you are a parent or legal guardian that wants to volunteer in your own child’s classroom, an online application, fingerprint clearance, and background investigation are not required.

If you are a parent or legal guardian participating in an overnight event or if you are a community member that wants to volunteer inside of the classroom, please follow the steps below.

What you need to be a volunteer:

  1. Apply online at QCUSD District Careers - notify the school(s) as soon as you have submitted your application.
  2. Background clearance (QCUSD HR department will submit a universal background check).
  3. Fingerprint clearance (HR will contact you with further instructions once your application has been approved). If you’ve received fingerprint clearance through QCUSD in the past and it is on record, or if you have a valid fingerprint clearance card, you are not required to complete this step.

All volunteers and chaperones are required to get fingerprinted and consent to a background check. Please allow at least four to six weeks for fingerprint clearance and the background check to clear.

Field trip chaperones must be at least 21 years of age.

*After you submit your application online you must contact the school(s) where you wish to volunteer. Volunteer applications cannot be processed without approval from the school office.

Once your background check is cleared, you will receive an email notification that you have been approved to volunteer. The school office will contact you regarding your approval.

*Volunteers must reapply every school year.

Do not hesitate to contact the school or Human Resources for more information: (480) 987-5935.
