Do all volunteers, including parent volunteers, have to go through background checks?
- Category: Volunteer Policy & Background Check FAQs
All volunteers – such as mentors, interns, tutors, chaperones, and volunteers working in concession stands and at gate receipts at athletic events must undergo a fingerprint background check, child protective service clearance, and training on reporting suspected child abuse at least 14 days in advance of the day field trip, overnight trip or activity on or off school property.
A fingerprint background check must be initiated through the PGCPS Fingerprinting Office before performing duties and the child protective services clearance must be initiated through Human Resources.
