  Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get credit for volunteer hours worked and for the Read Aloud program?
Volunteer hours will be manually credited by the Volunteer Coordinator for time recorded on Volunteer sign-in logs at the front office. Time noted on submitted Read Aloud forms will also be credited. If a parent is working on take-home projects, the teacher must approve hours worked. The teacher will forward to the Volunteer Coordinator to be recorded for credit. Information on the Read Aloud Program can be found by clicking HERE (link coming soon).

How do I get credit for future volunteer hours when I work in the classroom, the front office, special projects, fundraising, or outside?
Volunteers sign-up at any time on the Volunteer tracking system, called ADDitions, located on the OCPS website. Once enrolled in the ADDitions system, volunteers will sign-in each time they report to the school for volunteer work. A badge that must be worn at all times while on campus. Upon leaving campus, volunteers must sign-out of the ADDitions system and the volunteer hours will automatically be credited. Volunteer work cannot begin until background clearance is completed (approximately 6 weeks)

What is ADDitions?
ADDitions is the approved OCPS system that we use to screen School Volunteers, and how we keep track of your family's volunteer hours. When an ADDitions application is submitted, a background check is performed for the safety of the Oasis students, faculty, and staff. All volunteers at Oasis Preparatory Academy must be cleared through ADDitions. Parents/Guardians can submit their ADDitions application HERE.

How can I find out when to Volunteer at the School?
Information is posted on the website, sent home with students in their backpacks once or twice a month as newsletters and notices, and announcements are made at monthly PasP Meetings. Volunteering in the classroom can be pre-arranged directly with teachers. By joining our Oasis email list, you will receive email updates about volunteer opportunities and upcoming events. To join the list, visit the Home page and subscribe to the Oasis Prep Google Group.

What if I work full-time and cannot volunteer at the school during normal school hours?
Parents can accrue volunteer hours by participating in the Read Aloud Program (link coming soon) and can earn up to 4 hours per month. Parents may also do take-home projects for their child's teacher (making sure the teacher records and approves the volunteer time), attend night PasP meetings, and work on our Saturday Grounds-Keeping Work Days.
