    We encourage volunteers at Jessie Beck Elementary School and wish to thank you in advance for your support. For the safety of all children, WCSD has a volunteer screening policy. We appreciate your patience and compliance in keeping our schools safe. Effective July 2018, per Nevada state law, all individuals who volunteer for WCSD regularly with students must be fingerprinted to ensure the safety of all students.


    The cost for fingerprinting and the background check is $45.00, which is then valid for 5 years. Fingerprinting must be conducted by the WCSD School Police Department for adherence to the new law.


    • All volunteers must complete a School Volunteer Application yearly and submit it to the school office, along with a picture ID. IDs need to be official, such as a driver’s license, passport or identification card. Volunteer Applications are available at your school office or on the WCSD web page at www.washoeschools.net/Domain/91.
    • Applications are then turned into the school office. According to our policy, there is a two (2) week waiting period from the time the application is turned into the school. The volunteer services department needs this time to run a background check. After the applicant is checked and cleared, they may begin volunteering.OVERNIGHT CHAPERONES  
    • To be fingerprinted for overnight chaperoning, you must take the School Volunteer Application with an Authorized School Personnel Signature, as well as with your picture ID to the Fingerprint ID and Background Office. The Fingerprint ID and Background office is located at 425 E. Ninth Street in Reno. The office is located in the back on the left side of the building. Fingerprinting can be done from 8:00am-12:00pm and from 1:00pm-4:00pm every Monday through Friday (excluding holidays)
    • If you wish to volunteer as an Overnight Chaperone on a field trip, you must be fingerprinted at least six (6) weeks in advance of the field trip date, but no sooner than 6 months before the trip.
