Santa Clara Together
Santa Clara Together is a call to action to our community and parent volunteers, “stepping up in service of our students.” The latest COVID surge has impacted schools across the country creating challenges to providing the level of support our students need. Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD) is able to cover classroom substitute needs, but we can use assistance addressing personnel shortages when our support staff is impacted.
With that in mind, we are putting out this call to action to ask for volunteers from across our community to help in designated roles that are coordinated by school district representatives and school leadership.
Join our volunteer pool by completing this short volunteer interest form.
