Families, Friends and Community Members New Volunteer Process

To ensure the safety of all children in our district, starting July 1, 2017, all volunteers must be fingerprinted. The prints will be at no charge through Bristol PD on one of the planned dates (dates and locations TBA).  It is our hope that this will make the process more convenient for families. If at any point in the school year you volunteer, chaperone a field trip, or work with our students please follow the process below.  More dates and times for fingerprinting coming soon.

Here is what you need to know:

  • If you think you have current results on file, please check with your school’s administrative asst. to confirm.  If you do, you will only fill out the Volunteer Registration, Criminal Record Check and Agency of Human Services Forms

  • If you do not have results on file, your school will provide you with the following forms:  Volunteer Registration, Criminal Record Check, Agency of Human Services and VCIC Fingerprint Authorization Certificate

  • Completely fill out all forms

  • You will need to bring two current forms of ID when you come for fingerprints:

Primary List- Valid VT Driver's License, Valid Non-Driver ID, Valid Government ID card or US Passport.  

Secondary List- Valid Credit Card with signature, Valid Student ID, SS card, Check Cashing Card with Signature, Military ID.

You can have two forms of ID from the primary list or one from each list, but not two from the secondary list.

Frequently Asked Questions:  

When can I start volunteering?  Once the initial check is done (2 days), you will be permitted to volunteer pending print results.  

Do I have to do this every year?  Once the entire process is complete and we have received all results, you are permitted to volunteer for 3 years without retaking prints as long as you volunteer at least once each school year.  However, each year, you will fill out a volunteer form along with the two local background check forms.
