Hello Charleston County School District Volunteer Applicant,
We appreciate your interest and willingness to volunteer in our schools. Before you begin completing the application, please be sure to read this announcement in its entirety, as it offers very helpful information for successfully completing your application. To provide the safest possible environment for our students, all applicants undergo a criminal background check which includes a nationwide criminal history check, a Sex Offender Registry check, and a Social Security verification. While all applicants are reviewed and approved on an individual basis, automatic dis-qualifiers include all felony convictions, as well as more serious misdemeanors to include but not limited to; crimes against children, domestic violence, and serious narcotics and/or alcohol related offenses.
Please review these tips for successfully completing your application:
While most applications can be processed within 48 to 72 hours, some are taking as long as 7-10 days. This largely depends on the time it takes to complete the criminal history portion of the background check. Some states are taking longer than others to complete. If you have any questions regarding the application process, you may reach out to your child’s school or you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 843-529-3948.
