Our school district requires a background check for all business partners who will be volunteering at school sites. Once approved, this allows you to volunteer at any school. When the question is asked at which school you wish to volunteer, just choose any high school to get approval for all schools. These background checks are good for 3 years. If you have already completed one for other reasons, you do not need to complete another one for us.
