Background Check Forms

Background checks — Minneapolis Public Schools requires all volunteers going on school field trips to submit a background check.   Below is the link to the current online background check request form.  Once you complete the request, you will be sent an email (which may take up to 5 business days) with "Action Requested" in the subject line with more instructions.  You must complete those directions within 48 hours in order to start the background check process.  You will be notified of the background check results via email from the district.  

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
