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 are able to decide which roles are considered unsupervised at their school.  Most field trips require a background check.  

To request a background check:

1. Complete the volunteer background check request form here.

2. You will recieve an email with a link to complete your background check online within 5 business days. The email subject line will read "Action Required".  Important: the link will be valid for 48 hours only; if you do not complete the check within 48 hours, you will need to request a new link.

3. You will be notified via email once your background check is complete (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.
