Background Check Forms

Background checks — Minneapolis Public Schools now require all parent volunteers going on school field trips to submit a Criminal Background Check form by mail, to the district along with a $7 fee. Forms will be available in the school office.  Here is the link to the current background check form Criminal Record Authorization Form

This background check is good for two years from the date it was approved — so if you submitted one last year — you should be fine for this year.  Classroom teachers will be informed as soon as new parents are approved.  It can take 5-10 to process these forms through the district.
