Field Trips

Background checks are needed if you plan on chaperoning and volunteering at school.     Please see the information below.

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 $5 fee. Forms will available in the school office.  Here is the link to the current background check 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 have been give the master list from last year and will be informed as soon as new parents are approved. You can check with them to see when/if you will need to submit a new form. It can take 5-10 to process these forms through the district. If you include your email address on the form, you will be sent a confirmation that you are approved.
