Parent Committee – Volunteer Information

Volunteerlogo

A fundamental part of student success is parent support. At Kavod, we value the opportunity to have parents assist us in building a strong program though their volunteerism.

The Kavod Parent Committee

The Kavod Parent Committee (KPC) is a great way to get involved on a variety of levels and to help shape the direction of the Kavod program. If you are interested in being a member of the parent committee, please email parentcommittee@kavodelementary.org

Major Committees:

Live Scan
Volunteers will need to be fingerprinted through Livescan at the San Diego County Office of Education, if their volunteer position may require them to supervise students at any point where a Kavod faculty member is not present.

Information about the live scan process can be found at the SDCOE.

If you have already had your fingerprints cleared through Live Scan at SDCOE, please contact the director as you may already be in the system.

Volunteers are advised to make an appointment. 

Volunteers will need to bring with you the following:
a) 2 Copies of the CLEARINGHOUSE form
b) a cashier’s check or money order in the amount of $52 made out to SDCOE
c) valid photo identification (driver’s license, passport, state I.D., etc..)

Volunteer Sign In
There is a Volunteer Log at the Kavod office. Volunteers will need to sign in when they arrive and when they leave, and record the time spent volunteering.
