Background Checks

A preliminary background check is conducted on all newly registered volunteers. 

Board Policy IJOC and IJOC-R, as well as IJOA, require D11 volunteers who perform their duties without the supervision of a District 11 employee to submit to an extensive background check to include being fingerprinted, as we do potential employees.

Security is ONLY  available to conduct  fingerprinting Tuesdays, 1:00 p.m. -2:30 p.m. and Wednesdays and Thursdays, 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. (by appointment only). To make an appointment, please call (719) 520-2202.

Results of all background checks are shared with school administrators.

Extensive Background Check Procedures:

D11 volunteers requested by school staff to perform their duties without the supervision of a D11 employee (i.e., overnight field trips, out of district events) must be fingerprinted and background checked as we do potential employees.  The cost of an extensive background check is $54.50, plus an additional $5.00 per alias/maiden name.
Charter School volunteers cost is $72.40, plus $5.00 per alias/maiden name as directed by Business Services.
