• Why do I have to have a background check done if I am a parent in the District?
    Tier II, III & Coach volunteers are required to have a background check done, prior to being cleared as a volunteer. It is for the safety of our students.

    How long does it take for the Universal Background check to clear?
    Between 24 to 72 hours and the results are sent directly to HR. Some States can take a little longer, depending on their court process.

    How long does it take for fingerprints to clear?
    It can take up to 8 to 10 weeks for the fingerprints to be processed through the Department of Public Safety. The results are sent directly to HR.

    What is the cost of the Universal Background check and fingerprints?
    There is no cost to the Volunteer. The school district processes and pays for this service.

    Where is my Volunteer application and personal information kept?
    HR has a secure file cabinet in the HR department where the completed volunteer application, background check, and fingerprints (if applicable) information are kept.

    What happens to my information once the background and/or fingerprints are completed?
    HR updates a volunteer report daily and notifies the schools weekly of the updates.

    How long is the Volunteer application valid?
    Background check forms are good for 2 years. Fingerprints processed through HR are good for 6 years. Fingerprint Clearance cards supplied by the volunteer are good as long as the expiration date on the card is still valid.
