Volunteers

We appreciate your commitment and willingness to serve as a volunteer to help the students in the Pattonville School District.

The State of Missouri requires volunteers helping in certain capacities to undergo FBI/Missouri State Highway Patrol background and Family Care Safety Registry checks. The Family Care Safety Registry check is a sex offender/child abuse record check.
As a result, Pattonville School District Policy IICC-AC has been adopted to outline district volunteer
guidelines.
Here are some examples of volunteers who need to complete the background check requirements:

  • Volunteers whose work requires the volunteer to be alone with a student(s)
  • Volunteers who will be off campus with students where the volunteer is directly supervising students without the support of a staff member
  • Volunteers serving as a mentor on a one-to-one basis with a student(s)
  • Volunteers helping with a before/after school club or student organization without staff supervision

Here are examples of volunteers who DO NOT need a background check:

  • Classroom party volunteers
  • Volunteers for field trips during which teachers are supervising at all times
  • Volunteers attending an event at school during or after school hours


If you plan to volunteer in a role requiring FBI/Missouri State Highway Patrol background and Family Care Safety Registry checks, you will need to do the following:

  1. Submit a volunteer request form.
  2. Complete the Family Care Safety Registry and FBI/Missouri State Highway Patrol background
  3. check forms.

After you submit an online volunteer request form, the Pattonville Human Resources Center will email you the information regarding where you need to go to complete the background check and how to complete the Family Care Safety Registry. The cost to complete the Family Care Safety Registry is $14.53. The cost for the FBI/ Missouri State Highway Patrol background check is $39.75 as of February 7, 2023. The Pattonville School District will reimburse volunteers for half of the cost of the background check once paid receipts have been provided to Madison Hughes in the Human Resources Center.

Volunteers that successfully pass the FBI/Missouri State Highway Patrol background and Family Care Safety Registry check will be notified in writing. Please note:

  1. It can take several business days for the district to get the results.
  2. The results of the background check will remain confidential and will only be reviewed and evaluated by designated staff in the human resources department that have obtained training from the Missouri State Highway Patrol on background checks.
  3. Volunteers that have a potential background check issue will be contacted by the Pattonville School District Human Resources Center to discuss the matter.
  4. All volunteers that pass the background check will be notified their name will be added to a district database available to all District administrators and secretaries.
