Volunteering

  • Why Volunteer?

    Parent volunteers play an important role to the success of Henry Elementary students.  When parents actively participate in their child's school their child benefits. 

    Volunteer Opportunities

    There are many volunteer opportunities during school hours or after school. Volunteer opportunities include helping out in the classroom, the parent resource room or chaperon at a field trip or dance. Volunteering and attending school events, PTSA board meetings, and ELAC meetings, and/or joining a committee are all ways to earn participation points.

     If you would like assistance in volunteering, you may contact your school's Parent Liaison, Juanita Altamirano.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Where do I go to get fingerprinted if I want to volunteer?

    All applicants are fingerprinted at the SUSD Police Department, 640 N. San Joaquin Street, Stockton, CA 95202.

    Register online at:  beamentor.org/stockton.

     What will it cost me to get fingerprinted?

    There is no charge for volunteers to be fingerprinted.

    How do you fingerprint applicants?

    All applicants are fingerprinted electronically via a live scan machine and results are sent to the Department of Justice.

     What do I bring with me?

    Be prepared to show a current State or Federal issued identification card. We do not accept check cashing cards or expired ID cards for identification. All photo identification must be current.

     Do I need to be fingerprinted again if I was fingerprinted before? 

    Yes, the Department of Justice requires volunteers to be fingerprinted every 12 months. If you are applying for a job with Stockton Unified, you will also need to be re-fingerprinted. The Department of Justice runs two different kinds of background checks on employees and volunteers. There is a $51.00 charge for employment fingerprinting.

     How long does it take for the results to come back?

    Fingerprint returns can take up to 30 days.  Once we have fingerprinted you, we will issue you a fingerprint receipt. This receipt is NOT a clearance to work or volunteer. It is just to let the school know that you have been fingerprinted.

     How do I know if I am clear to volunteer? 

    Once the SUSD Police Department receives verification from the Department of Justice, you will be notified by mail.

    Who can I contact for additional questions or concerns?
