Lemoore Union Elementary School District (LUESD) welcomes and encourages parents, grandparents, guardians, as well as other patrons of this district to become involved in neighboring schools by volunteering their spare time or by serving as a chaperone for school field trips. Please contact your school directly and ask how you can volunteer or chaperone. There are many ways to get involved in the education of children.

All New and Returning Volunteers and Chaperones Required to Complete Online Application Using Raptor in 2018-19

Beginning July 1, 2018, anyone interested in serving as a volunteer or chaperone for the 2018-2019 school year must apply through the Raptor system, even if you have already applied through the Raptor system from the previous year. In order to complete the entire application process, you must visit the school site where you wish to volunteer or chaperone to have your government-issued identification scanned. You will receive an email notification once you have been approved.

  • The LUESD Volunteer/Chaperone Application takes approximately five minutes to complete. Volunteer and Chaperone applicants are required to have a personal email address in order to submit the application, which includes automated notification when the application is approved.
  • Volunteers and Chaperones who do not have an email address may use the district's email address, or ask for assistance at the school office to complete the application.

What is a Volunteer vs a Chaperone?

  • Volunteers are under the direct supervision of a certificated employee (e.g. volunteering in the classroom, helping with special programs). Volunteers DO NOT require fingerprinting.
  • Chaperones are not supervised by a certificated employee (e.g. field trips). Chaperones require fingerprinting.

Clearance criteria for each is listed below:


1. Complete Online Volunteer/Chaperone Application and Registered Sex Offender Check through the Raptor System

2. TB Risk Assessment/Clearance

LiveScan Fingerprinting appointments will be scheduled through the Human Resources Department, once Chaperones have completed the online application. Cost for fingerprinting is at the expense of the chaperone, and is currently $87.00. Acceptable forms of payment include cash, credit card, Money Order or Cashier’s Check made payable to Hanford Mobile Live Scan. Returning Chaperones who have a fingerprint clearance on file with the district are not required to be fingerprinted again. A fingerprint clearance shall remain valid as long as the parent/guardian has children who remain continuously enrolled in the district. Any break in enrollment may cause the fingerprint clearance to be nullified.
