Background Checks for Volunteers
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools. We value the time and talents of our volunteers!
To ensure the safety of our students, we require criminal background checks on the following:
- Any volunteer who accompanies students off campus (i.e., chaperones for field trips).
- Any volunteer who is responsible for working with students on campus, but not under the supervision of a licensed teacher.
Volunteer background checks need to be done one time per year, either at the beginning of the school year or one calendar year from the last date of volunteer service. Volunteers may not begin or continue to volunteer until they have been cleared.
Background checks are $21 and are to be paid online by the volunteer. If the cost is a hardship, volunteers should contact their building principal directly.
Background checks take approximately 48 hours to be processed and cleared through the district. All information on the application will be maintained in a confidential manner. If there are any concerns regarding the results of a background check, the building principal will contact that individual directly after receiving the results. If a volunteer is not contacted within 48 hours after filling out the background check form, they are clear to volunteer.

Thank you for your cooperation as we continue to maintain a safe and secure educational environment for our students.
