Background Checks

Background Checks for all Chaperones and Volunteers Working In Schools and/or with Amherst County Public School's Students

Staff members are reminded to communicate to chaperones and volunteers that they must complete a background check prior to serving as a chaperone or volunteer. There is no charge for the background check: however, results of the check can sometimes take several weeks.


Therefore, staff members should communicate to perspective chaperones and/or volunteers that they should complete the background check well in advance of scheduled field trips or activities they wish to chaperone or participate in as a volunteer. Individuals should come to the Human Resources Office to complete background checks. Background checks are required to be updated every 5 years.

Background Check Schedule:
Monday - Friday: 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. & 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.

*Background checks will not be processed when school is closed (holidays, staff development days, inclement weather, etc.)
