Volunteer Background Check


The following information is to provide clarification and consistency in the procedures for performing background checks on individuals that volunteer in the Clarkston Community School district.

  1. The State of Michigan requires by law that school districts perform background checks of school employees.
  2. Board policies require all potential volunteers be screened through ICHAT (Internet Criminal History Tool) and OTIS (Offender Tracking Information Services-sex offender registry). This is to be done prior to the first time an individual participates or volunteers for a school sponsored activity.
  3. All records are kept confidential and will not be received or disseminated to anyone not directly involved in the screening process.
  4. The district reserves the right to perform additional background checks at any time for the duration of the volunteer's service in the district. This can be performed regardless of self-disclosure of inappropriate behavior following the initial check.
  5. A master list of approved volunteers will be maintained by the district in accordance with Board policy.
