Safe Steps to Safe Schools

  • Campus and Facilities Access / Visitor Policies

    Spring 2022

    Los Angeles Unified has organized the following guide to inform school communities about safety access requirements at school sites and District facilities.

  • Parents and Guardians Visiting a Main Office: Questions, Inquiries, Tours and Information Lasting Less Than 1 Hour

    What safety protocols and requirements should I fulfill as a parent non-guardian, and visitor if I am going to visit a campus office for general questions, inquiries, access information and attend a campus tour?

    Parents and families must take the Daily Health Check if visiting a school office for a transaction that may include asking questions, requesting information or content for the child. This also applies to families attending school tours. This applies to interactions lasting less than an hour.

     

    Parents and Guardians Attending IEP, Intake and Assessments, Classroom Observations, Mandated Training, and Conferences with School Staff 

    What safety protocols and requirements should I fulfill if I am attending a 1-1 or small group session with school personnel that is required, and student-centered?

    Parents and families must show a photo ID along with proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 7 days of their visit or proof of vaccination upon arrival on campus. COVID-19 tests can be scheduled through the Daily Pass using a Parent Portal account, or through an outside provider. In addition, they must respond to the Daily Health Check questions.

    Parents, Families and Community Participating In After School Sporting Events or Performances

    What safety protocols and requirements should I fulfill as a spectator in order to attend a Los Angeles Unified sporting event or after school performance held on school facilities?

    Spectators attending competitions or performances after school hours will be asked to respond to the Daily Health Check questions before accessing the venue. This guidance is aligned to direction provided by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.

     

    School Volunteer Program

    What safety protocols and requirements must I fulfill in order to serve as a school volunteer at a Los Angeles Unified facility?

    School volunteers must upload proof of COVID-19 vaccination into the Daily Pass. Volunteers are also required to provide a negative COVID-19 baseline test and follow the District’s COVID-19 testing requirements. They will also be asked to complete the online application available at https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/10443 in order to receive a badge and to continue volunteering for a longer period of time.

     

    Partnerships and No-Cost MOUs

    This process is for no-cost MOU agreements with community agencies providing health and non-health services to school campuses.

    External non-profit organizations offering school sites with no-cost services complete a no-cost memorandum of understanding (MOU) in coordination with Los Angeles Unified Wellness Programs, following guidance available at https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/14113#spn-content. After the MOU is approved, personnel from the organization who will interact with the school campus request a single sign-on at https://oneaccess.lausd.net/. The Single Sign-On activates a Los Angeles Unified account for persons to complete the Daily Pass and to complete the District’s COVID-19 testing and vaccination safety requirements. This includes the organization completing the Covid-19 Vaccination Certification Form for all personnel providing services on school campuses/facilities.

     

    Parent Organizations (PTA, PTO and Booster Clubs Parent Members)

    What safety protocols and requirements should I fulfill as a member of a parent organization (PTA, PTO, Booster Club) if I am volunteering on a Los Angeles Unified campus and facility in order to continue serving at a Los Angeles Unified facility?

    Parent organization members volunteering at a Los Angeles Unified facility must meet the COVID-19 vaccination deadlines adopted by Los Angeles Unified for personnel. This includes having COVID-19 vaccination on file in the Daily Pass. Parent organizations are also required to provide a negative COVID-19 baseline test which can be completed at a Los Angeles Unified site offered in Daily Pass and receive a weekly test with the school site mobile unit or with a provider of choice to continue volunteering. To access the Daily Pass for volunteer activities, complete the School Volunteer Program application available at https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/10443. If Parent Organizations wish to host a fundraiser, contact your school site and refer to BUL-1633.3 available at https://achieve.lausd.net/domain/849. 

     

    Facilities Real Estate & Asset Development

    What safety protocols and requirements should I fulfill as a third-party organization who is using school facilities after school hours and on weekends under a license or permit, in order to continue serving at a Los Angeles Unified facility?

    Third parties using a school facility after hours and on weekends under a District issued permit or license are required to follow the guidance provided by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health for the activity, location on the campus (indoor or outdoor) age group, etc. (Do not use Daily Pass for after school and weekend activities.)

     

    Counselors and Student Teachers

    What safety protocols and requirements should I fulfill as a college intern from an organization or university who has established an agreement with Los Angeles Unified in order to continue serving at a Los Angeles Unified facility?

    College students who need to fulfill service hours as part of their program of study must contact their program to determine if they have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Los Angeles Unified. If the program is a District approved program, college student interns may contact AskHR@lausd.net to request an assignment with Los Angeles Unified. Once approved the intern will request a single sign-on at https://oneaccess.lausd.net/. The Single Sign-On activates a Los Angeles Unified account for persons to complete the Daily Pass and to fulfill the District’s COVID-19 testing and vaccination safety requirements. This includes for student interns to upload their COVID-19 vaccination card in the Daily Pass.

     

    Contractors, Vendors, and other Partner Organizations (including major league sports and philanthropic partners)

    What safety protocols and requirements should I fulfill as an employee of a third-party contractor or partner organization of Los Angeles Unified (including major sports and philanthropic organizations)? 

    Third-party vendors, contractors, and partners are required to complete a Vaccination Certification Form via their sponsoring District office to self-certify that all personnel have met the Los Angeles Unified COVID-19 safety requirements, including vaccination and COVID-19 testing. These groups do not use Daily Pass. Guidance to self-certify are available at: https://achieve.lausd.net/Page/3904.
