New Volunteer Background Check Information

School Volunteer Background Check Fees to Increase Nov. 1

Starting Nov. 1, 2018, the price for Polk County Public Schools volunteer background checks will increase from $25 to $40.

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 increased price for 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.

As a benefit of the new system coming in November, volunteers will be able to apply and make payments online, and the application process will be faster and more efficient.

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.

Please see the attached flyer or visit https://tinyurl.com/ybhlb3dv for complete details.

Reminder – Tuesday, September 18th is Open House! The Kona Ice man will arrive at 5:00 PM, for those purchasing Kona Ice! The doors will open at 5:30 PM for the Title 1 Meeting and pizza in the cafeteria! Then off to visit the classrooms! Everyone is invited to the Title 1 Meeting and to Open House! Open House will end at 7:00 PM, so we can prepare for learning Wednesday morning!
