Volunteer Background Check process

Volunteer Background Check process

Background checks are required for volunteers that will be working in an unsupervised role with a sudent(s).  Schools have the authority to decide which roles will require a background check  Most field trips require a background check.  

You will recieve a link to complete an online background check within 5 business days of receiving your authorization form.  You will be notified via email once your background check clears (typical processing time 2-3 days).  The school will also be notified of your background check results.  Please allow enough time for this process before your volunteering begins.

Once cleared, your background check will be good for two years.  

Please contact Shira Rowland in Human Resources with questions about background checks:
