School Volunteer Background Check Fees Update
UPDATE: Volunteer Background Check Fees will remain at $25 for the remainder of the school year.
To coincide with the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, we’re tightening security measures to protect our students, faculty and staff. The new background checks will include: a national background check, Social Security number verification, address verification, multiple name/alias check and terror watch list check.
Volunteers are required to reapply and renew their background check every five years from the date of their application approval.
For now, those wishing to become an approved volunteer should visit www.polkschoolsfl.com/getinvolved.
Print an application, fill it out, and submit it to the school where you would like to volunteer.
