For the safety of children, volunteers are required to have an approved background check when volunteering in schools.

To help streamline compliance with state and school board policies, which require that all volunteers have background checks and knowledge of other board policies -- as well as state-mandated proof of vaccination (or a qualified exemption) -- we are introducing a new all-in-one volunteer application and approval process through ou Raptor Visitor Management System.

Submitting an online application initiates the background check process. Once submitted, applicants will receive an email upon approval of your background check and you will be given access through the onsite Raptor System at all schools. Please allow up to three weeks to process your approval.

Volunteers need to submit only one application for volunteering in all LOSD schools. Applications need to be submitted annually to capture changes in background checks, policies, and/or vaccination requirements.

Volunteer Application for LOSD

Thank you for applying promptly, and for your service to our students and schools. We are grateful for our volunteers.


Para la seguridad de los niños, se requiere que los voluntarios tengan una verificación de antecedentes aprobada cuando se ofrecen como voluntarios en las escuelas.

Para ayudar a agilizar el cumplimiento de las políticas estatales y de la junta escolar, que requieren que todos los voluntarios tengan verificación de antecedentes y conocimiento de otras políticas de la junta, así como prueba de vacunación exigida por el estado (o una exención calificada), estamos introduciendo un nuevo Proceso de solicitud y aprobación de voluntarios en uno a través de nuestro sistema de gestión de visitantes Raptor.

Enviar una solicitud en línea inicia el proceso de verificación de antecedentes. Una vez enviados, los solicitantes recibirán un correo electrónico sobre la aprobación de su verificación de antecedentes y se les dará acceso a través del Sistema Raptor en el sitio en todas las escuelas. Espere hasta tres semanas para procesar su aprobación.

Los voluntarios deben presentar solo una solicitud para ser voluntario en todas las escuelas LOSD. Las solicitudes deben enviarse anualmente para capturar los cambios en las verificaciones de antecedentes, las políticas y/o los requisitos de vacunación.

Volunteer Application for LOSD

Gracias por presentar su solicitud con prontitud y por su servicio a nuestros estudiantes y escuelas. Estamos agradecidos por nuestros voluntarios.

State Assessment Score Reports:

LOSD now delivers students’ state assessment results online through ParentVUE rather than mailing paper. This is in keeping with the district’s strategic goal of sustainability and mirrors how we deliver report cards. Your child’s 2021-22 assessment reports are now available on your ParentVUE Documents page. As you review your student’s English Language Arts, math, and science scores, please keep in mind:

  • An achievement level of 3 or 4 is considered to be on track for the student’s grade level.

  • Scores on state assessments are only one measure of a student’s academic progress. We use these scores in conjunction with classroom work and other daily, weekly, monthly, and term assessments to understand your student’s strengths and areas for improvement.

If you have forgotten your ParentVUE password, go to the login page, click "I am a Parent," then click "Forgot Password." If you are unsure whether you have a ParentVUE account or need assistance, please contact your student’s school.

We hope to see you at our First Art Literacy Meeting of the year! Come learn about helping with this fantastic enrichment program that gives you a chance to volunteer in your child's classroom and help with a fun art project each month. You don't have to be an artist, you don't have to feel comfortable leading and you don't have to be available to do it all year. We welcome all of our guardians to come learn more about this program!
