Volunteer Clearance and Fingerprinting

Dear Parents,

We have heard very good questions and concerns about who should be fingerprinted and why. Most importantly, we want to be sure we know who is working directly with our students and around staff to ensure a safe working and learning environment at every school.

• Why Fingerprinting?

>The Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI provide information to school   districts on each adult that has been fingerprinted in the district. The CBO and Superintendent are the two identified employees to read this confidential information only. This confidential information from the DOJ and FBI include any misdemeanors, felonies and DUIs of our fingerprinted adults.

> This information is important to help us when we choose adults to drive on field trips and volunteers to directly instruct and supervise our students in the classroom and at school.

>Fingerprinting is a one-time expense and activity during the time served in the school district.
