Annual Background Check for Volunteers

Arco Iris School welcomes volunteers in our school and classrooms.  The time our parents and community members devote to our school is what helps make our school such a great place for our kids.

Every volunteer at Arco Iris must have a criminal background check completed on a yearly basis.  Because the school district does not share background check results, you must complete this process for Arco Iris even if you have completed it for BSD. It takes approximately 2 business days to complete the process, so if you would like to volunteer for a field trip or other event, please plan ahead!

Arco Iris contracts with Northwest Regional ESD and CRIS, Inc. to support our background check services. The NWESD currently supports dozens of school districts in Oregon with the CRIS background check for volunteers. The system checks against numerous databases including, but not limited to: Department of Corrections (DOC)/Public Safety Records, State Court Records (AOC), County Criminal Court (CCO), County Sheriff Arrest (CSO), Registered Sex Offenders (RSO), National Motor Vehicle records, and Social Security verification.

To learn about specific volunteer opportunities and needs, please contact our PTO.

If you would like to volunteer at our school, please complete the electronic volunteer background check form using the link below. Please only submit a background check once – it costs money for each submission, even if you have already been approved. Background check fees of $3.50 are passed onto the school.
