Background Checks:

Background checks are not needed when the volunteer is not alone with students and the volunteer event is staff supervised. Examples of events that are not needing a background check include Classroom Helper/Volunteer, Classroom Party/Event, Classroom Reader, Junior Achievement, and Guest Speaker.

Background checks are needed when there is a potential for the volunteer to be alone with students. Examples of events that are needing a background check include Field Trip/Chaperone, Student Teacher/Placement, Volunteer Coaching, and Vision/Hearing Screening.

Next Steps:

  1. Review the Volunteer Guidelines below and submit the Volunteer Form.

  2. Once application is received, Human Resources will reach out to the volunteer - either approving the volunteer for the event or letting the volunteer know that a background check will be needed.

  3. If a background check is needed, the volunteer will receive an email from support@mcdowellagency.com with a link to complete the background check online.

  4. The volunteer will receive another email from support@mcdowellagency.com upon submission of the background check.

  5. It will take MPS approximately 24-72 hours to receive the background check results. Human Resources will follow up with the volunteer once they receive the background check results.
