Hello VVE Parents:
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.
