All adults who are paid or volunteer personnel (clergy, religious and lay) must complete a background check. Background checks are required to be updated every five years. We offer online services for background checks through S2Verify, Inc. Click the link for more info about our background screening provider.
For more information regarding system requirements, fees and processing, please contact Mary Hamann.
An S2Verify Authorization Form is required for each background check. Once completed, the form and the results of the background check are kept on file at the appropriate location in a secured, locked area. Each organization shall maintain a database of all staff and volunteers with the dates of each person's criminal background check:
