Are you a VIP?

Did you know FVHS has MANDATORY REQUIREMENTS for all volunteers? All volunteers regardless of their volunteer activity level must be VIP'd. 

This is a 4 step process 

1. Fill out the online VIPS (Volunteers In Public Schools) application. This is MANDATORY FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS. The VIPS application needs to be filled out every school year.  

2. Provide a current negative TB test result OR see our school nurse for a TB Risk Assessment. Please call Marci at 714-962-3301 ext. 4430 to make sure she is on campus. This is for volunteers who will have frequent or prolonged contact with students. This step needs to be done every 4 years.

3. Get fingerprinted and cleared through the district. If you require fingerprinting, Jodi Kohanek the CRC (Community Resource Coordinator) will email you the form after you complete the online VIPS application. This is for volunteers who are day chaperones, overnight chaperones, or who have frequent or prolonged contact with students. This step only needs to be done once. 

4. For all volunteers who drive students you need to fill out a Volunteer Driver Form. This is mandatory and required for all volunteer drivers. This step needs to be done every school year.
