fingerprinting information

Field trips are an important and exciting part of every child’s school experience. In Orinda we have often depended on volunteer drivers for our transportation needs. It has come to our attention that there are requirements pursuant to Education Code that govern this practice. Effective the beginning of the 2018/19 school year, all OUSD schools will be adopting the following practices.

Criminal background checks will be necessary for volunteers driving on field trips in addition to those supervising overnight camps. Parents/guardians driving students or chaperoning overnight field trips need to clear fingerprints with DOJ/FBI.

The criminal background check requirement shall not apply to volunteer supervisors for lunch or other nutritional periods or for classroom volunteers working under the immediate supervision and direction of certificated personnel.

In order to facilitate the many field trips that happen over the course of the year, we are eager to amass a bank of parents who have passed a criminal background check through a fingerprint screen. Parents’ clubs across the district have arranged for a fingerprinting service to be present at all of our TB screening days. To the best of my knowledge, your clearance will remain in effect for the duration of your children’s enrollment in OUSD schools.

Cost: At time of services, you will be asked to pay $22 to Red Tomatoes, the company that takes your prints and submits paperwork to law enforcement. The charges incurred from DOJ and FBI will be covered at a later date by our entire parent community.

updated fingerprint screening sessions (as of 9/19/18)
  • Sept. 25th Tuesday from 7:30 - 11:30am in the Wagner Gym 
  • Sept. 27th from 6:00 - 9:00pm in the Wagner Ranch Art Room (next to the office)

The cost is $22 and payment can be made via cash, charge or a check addressed to Red Tomatoes. You will also need to bring your driver's license or DMV ID.

To expedite the process, please come a few minutes early to fill out the OUSD fingerprint form or bring the form completed. Extra forms are also available in the office.

To be most efficient with parents' time, please sign up for a time slot.

tb screening information

If you plan to volunteer in ANY capacity, you must show you are free of communicable tuberculosis (TB). The Contra Costa Health Department REQUIRES all volunteers, whether in the classroom, on field trips, or in the hot lunch program, to provide proof of completing a TB assessment/screening.

OUSD is hosting Adult Tuberculosis Risk Assessments in September 2018 at the times and locations listed below. You are welcome to go to any of these sessions or you can do TB screening through a private health care provider.

To proceed, print and complete the top portion of the TB Risk Assessment Form and bring it to your screening session. The bottom portion (Certificate of Completion) will be completed by the health care provider and must be turned in to the Wagner Ranch front office.

If you plan to volunteer at multiple schools or other organizations, please make a copy of your form and submit as needed. Your TB clearance will be in effect for four years.

For returning parents, if your TB clearance has expired or is soon to do so, you were notified in your Jump Start packet. f you are unsure of your status, please contact our front office.

COST FOR SCREENING: $10.00/volunteer. Please have cash or check made payable to "Sutter Care at Home" There is no charge for OUSD employees.
