     Cumberland would not be the same without all of our wonderful volunteers! Please review the information below to make sure you are ready to help make a difference.
     

All Volunteers

  • NEW DIGITAL FORM:  Sunnyvale School District utilizes a digital form to clear volunteers.  Each volunteer must submit the digital volunteer form, along with a valid TB test done within the last 4 years and proof of COVID-19 vaccination.   All volunteers must be approved by our district office in order to start volunteering at Cumberland. Volunteer clearance is only valid for the current school year.  You must submit a new Volunteer form each school year.

    HOW TO SUBMIT A VOLUNTEER* FORM: 

    • The district office is utilizing a platform called Permission Click.  
    • The approval process can take up to 2 weeks to be completed. Please plan accordingly. Forms cannot be expedited.
    • Please submit your digital volunteer form, and a valid TB test by using Cumberland’s digital form. Link below. 
    • Make sure to include all of your children, if you have more than one child attending Cumberland.
    • If you have a child at another school, you will need to ask the front office of that specific school for their specific link.

    FINGERPRINTING CLEARANCE (IF NECESSARY)

    All volunteers who are driving or chaperoning on field trips will need to be fingerprinted.

    You will need to take a photo I.D. and Social Security Number along with the Sunnyvale School District Fingerprinting Form to a facility to be fingerprinted.  The UPS Store has a fingerprinting service.

    Note: if you have previously been fingerprinted with the Sunnyvale School District, you do not need to repeat the process.  However, if you have been previously fingerprinted with another agency you will need to be fingerprinted using the Sunnyvale School District Fingerprinting Form. Note: If there is any chance that you might drive students this year or in the future of your child's time in Sunnyvale School District (ex: sporting events in middle school), consider getting fingerprinted asap so you have it done and on file!

    FIELD TRIP DRIVERS:

    *If there is any chance that you might drive on a fieldtrip during the school year, please complete that portion of the Volunteer Form as well.  The Drivers form is embedded in the Permission Click Volunteer Form.

    • After you submit your form, you will receive a confirmation email from Permission Click that your form has been submitted
    • Each volunteer form, TB test and proof of vaccination will go through a 3 step approval process.  
    • Front office reviews your form, TB test and proof of vaccination
