Please provide name and last name with phone number of a person over 18 yrs. of age. Thank you!

Are you required by the school representative to complete a high-level security check known as a BCI/FBI fingerprint check?

Only answer if you will be coming to CMSD's Safety and Security Office located at 1349 E. 79th Street, Cleveland 44103. Cost is $46 payable with a money order.
Check for hours and time.

If you are not required by the school to have a High-level Security check you must complete a low-level security check in order to volunteer at the school. Please remember if you are a member of a Community Group there will be a cost of $10 to complete this check. College students will not be charged for this check.

This check will always allow you to serve under staff supervision. Please let us know if you will consent to a low-level security check by Verified Volunteers. If you consent, please remember to sign your electronic signature in the next section.

This check only includes a criminal check in national databases. CMSD does not check credit scores with consumer reporting agencies. The Cleveland Metropolitan School District's Volunteer Guidelines reserves the right to address the individual situation of a volunteer with a felony conviction.

Please indicate the approximate date you moved in to your listed address.

Please remember to sign if you wish for CMSD to complete this check for you. Thank you!

All volunteers need to display appropriate behavior at all times. All volunteers who work or apply to work unsupervised with children will be required to provide a set of fingerprints so that a criminal records check can be conducted.
