The Cost of Live Scans can range from $60-$100 depending on the local vendor your choose. SHUSD will cover the associated DOJ Fee and Volunteers will be responsible for the $30-$35 dollar rolling fee. Fee Waivers will be available to those unable to afford these fee’s, please contact the District Office to see if you qualify for a full or partial waiver.

As of August 1, 2021, ALL VOLUNTEERS will be required to have current Live Scan Results , TB Risk Assessments, and verification of COVID-19 vaccination status on file with the District Office or you will be asked to complete them before returning to volunteering.

The Southern Humboldt Unified School District (SHUSD) Board of Education recognizes and appreciates that volunteer assistance in schools can significantly enrich the educational program, increase supervision of students, contribute to school safety, and strengthen a school’s relationship with the community.

The Board encourages parents/guardians and other members of the community to share their time, knowledge and abilities with students. The Board, in compliance with California Education Code Section 35021 and Board Policy 1240, requires school volunteers to be screened and authorized to volunteer.
