How To Get Involved

We Love Volunteers!

Haddon STEAM Academy deeply appreciates the participation of volunteers throughout the year because it enriches the student's experience while helping the teachers and staff. 

In accordance with LAUSD policy, volunteers who work with or around students during the instructional day must first provide to the school office: (1) a completed LAUSD School Volunteer Application and (2) written TB clearance performed within 6 months prior to volunteering (a negative TB test result is valid for 4 years). Broadway also asks its volunteers to read, sign and return a copy of (3) the Campus Volunteer Guidelines. Adherence to the Campus Volunteer Guidelines helps ensure volunteer consistency, the safety of our children and the integrity of student instructional time.

Whenever possible, volunteer talents and skills will be matched with assigned tasks, however, volunteers are asked to be flexible and willing to help where needed. There are several areas in which volunteers routinely serve on Haddon's campus: 


Classroom Volunteers

To best support the teachers' needs and to preserve the integrity of instructional time, volunteers are invited to help in the classroom at the discretion of the teachers and by appointment only.

Class Materials Support

Teachers and staff often appreciate help with photocopying, collating, cutting, and preparing materials for instructional and administrative use. Interested volunteers may speak with parent center director for details about when and how to help.

Field Trip Chaperones

Volunteer chaperones are greatly appreciated to ensure a productive and safe experience for students on class field trips. Teachers will request volunteer chaperones as the need arises. Please note that the number of available spaces for parent chaperones may be limited depending upon the location.


Volunteering on Committees

Based on your expertise, time availability, and interest, there are many committees that can use your help:

School-Wide Committees


Curbside Valet Drop-Off

This is a parent-campus aide run committee that oversees the valet system, which alleviates congestion and parking issues during student drop-off. 

The Student Curbside Valet Service allows students to be safely dropped off at school in the morning without the need for parking. The service is offered between 7:15 a.m. and 7:40 a.m. each week day and is being organized by parent volunteers and campus aides from all classrooms. Parent volunteers arrive at 7:15 a.m. for set-up.


School Site Council (SSC)

The SSC, governed under LAUSD guidelines, is the decision-making council for the school’s categorical budget to improve student achievement. The SSC develops and approves the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA) in consultation with all stakeholders.


English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The ELAC, governed under LAUSD guidelines, must advise and make recommendations to the School Site Council on the following four (4) legally required topics:

  1. Advise the SSC on the development of the SPSA, especially those sections related to English learners.
  2. Assist in the development of the school’s needs assessment.
  3. Assist in the development of the school’s language census.
  4. Assist in the development of the school’s efforts to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.
