Background Check Forms

Background checks — Minneapolis Public Schools requires all parent volunteers going on school field trips to submit a Criminal Background Check.   Below is the link to the current online background check form. 

Background Check - Online 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 business days to process these forms. 

If you have been approved in the past and would like to know when your background check expires, please contact family liaison Lori Smith at
