Volunteer Requirements

Safeguarding the Children

 

If you are interested in volunteering in the classroom and or in the presence of students, please read the following information about Live Scan Fingerprinting and Virtus training requirements.   

  In order to insure the safety and well being of our students, Our Lady of Malibu School maintains a closed campus.  Therefore, all visitors (including parents) must check in at the office and obtain a Visitor/Volunteer Badge. 

An additional part of promoting safety for children is the mandate that all school personnel and volunteers must be live scan fingerprinted and participate in the VIRTUS Training Program for adults.  Please be advised that those not fingerprinted and trained in VIRTUS will not be able to serve in a voluntary capacity on campus.  Please contact the school office if you have any questions about the programs or requirements.  Parents who have met the requirements must report to the school office and obtain a Visitor/Volunteer Badge any time they are on campus.   

 

Any person who wishes to volunteer/work in the presence of students must complete these steps:
