Criminal Background Check
Austin Partners' in Education (APIE) provides the criminal background check for the school's volunteers. Please following the instructions below to register as a classroom volunteer, field trip chaperone, etc. and this will authorize them to conduct a criminal background check. You must register for every program/activity you participate in, even if you were registered last year. These checks can take up to 7 business days. Please plan accordingly. You WILL NOT be allowed on field trip until it has been processed.
All information is kept confidential and is only used for the purpose of determining a clear history. The information reported is simply cleared or not cleared status: no other personal information is shared with the school. Ms. Thompson is designated to receive the information and it is not shared with teachers or other volunteers.
