Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) Clearance Information

Parents can fill out the OUSD volunteer form HERE.

Clearance Requirements

  • Parents / Guardians need TB clearance if they will be volunteers 3 or more time and they are supervised by an OUSD staff member for the entire time that they’re volunteering (ex. in the classroom).
  • Parents / Guardians wanting to work alone with students unsupervised (ex: one-on-one tutoring, chaperoning an overnight field trip and/or driving students to a field trip) must complete the live scan fingerprint clearance as well. Volunteers who are fully cleared in this way will be given a badge and lanyard to wear while volunteering to denote their clearance level.

Fingerprinting address is 524 7th Street, Oakland, CA 94607 (between Washington & Clay, and directly across the street from the Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse, and a few blocks away from the 12th Street Downtown Oakland BART Station). There is metered street parking in front of the building, a parking lot at the corner of 7th & Clay, and a parking garage at 7th and Jefferson (open Monday – Friday, $1.50 for 1 hour). Please bring the Request for Live Scan Service form (downloadable here) and ID. The price is $35. They are open Monday – Friday 9 am – 5 pm. No appointment is necessary Monday – Friday. They are also open on Saturday from 9 am – 12:30 pm, but appointments are required. Appointments can be made online at www.fingerprintingappointment.com
