Guide to Volunteer Clearance

Thank you for your desire to volunteer on our campus! We appreciate the many ways individuals support Mesa Grande Academy with their time and talents!

One of our top priorities is student safety and we have a comprehensive volunteer clearance policy to ensure student safety. This policy is developed by the Southeastern California Conference Office of Education and is based on California state laws and the Pacific Union Education Code we abide by.

The following outlines the categories of volunteers and steps required to be cleared to volunteer. You will fall into one of these categories and you must follow the steps in that category only. We strongly urge you to do this ASAP because you may not be cleared for an event if you leave it until the last minute. If you have any questions, please contact our office at (909) 795-1112.
