Ceres Unified School District

Volunteer Assistant Program

Welcome Volunteers! 

Ceres Unified School District encourages parents, guardians, and members of the community to share their time, knowledge, and abilities to support our students and our schools. We believe school volunteers enrich educational programs and strengthen our schools’ relationships with families, businesses, public agencies, and private institutions.

To ensure and enhance the safety and well-being of CUSD students, CUSD will be using an online Volunteer Application through the Raptor Program. CUSD will be implementing the volunteer approval process for Supervised, Unsupervised and Pre-School Volunteers. All volunteers will need to fill out new applications every year. TB clearance is required to be uploaded for all volunteers, additional information may also be required. 

Please allow 3-5 business days for applications to be processed. 

The volunteer application is not formatted to be filled out on a cell phone, if you need assistance filling out your application please contact the school you are applying for and someone in the front office will be happy to assist you.

“Supervised” school volunteers can have occasional or regular contact with students in or outside of the classroom. Supervised Volunteers perform their volunteer work under the supervision of an approved school employee, including one-day field trip chaperones. 

“Unsupervised” school volunteers have direct and on-going contact with students. These volunteers perform most of their volunteer work under the supervision of an approved school employee. Unsupervised Volunteers are approved to have extended unsupervised direct contact with students. Examples of Unsupervised Volunteers include one-on-one tutors, volunteer athletic or band helpers, and overnight fieldtrip chaperones.
