Volunteer Background Check process

Volunteer Background Check process

**HR will begin processing background checks for the 23-24 school year the week of August 21, 2023.

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

To request a background check:

1. Complete the volunteer background check request form here.

2. You will receive an email with a link to complete your background check online within 5 business days. The email will be sent from First Advantage and the subject line will read "kick off your background check".  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.  The school will also be notified of your background check results.  Please allow 2-3 weeks to complete the background check process before your volunteering begins.  Once cleared, your background check results are valid for two years.
