This is the first part of a two-step process that consists of a background check followed by the Bryan ISD online application. After your background check information has been submitted, please go back to the Bryan ISD website and complete the Bryan ISD Volunteer Online application. Both steps are required for all volunteer candidates in order to be considered. Please make sure to enter the SAME information (name, last name, etc) as it appears on your identification in both forms.
Bryan ISD is required by state law (TEC 22.0835) to complete a criminal background review on any person or volunteer who has indicated, in writing, an intention to serve as a volunteer with the district in a school where they do not have a student currently enrolled.
Bryan ISD has determined that, for the safety and well-being of our students, that ALL who wish to volunteer at any of our facilities, departments, participate in a university/college sponsored Field Experience, or observe in a classroom, need to complete this registration form and have a criminal background review completed.

DPS Computerized Criminal History (CCH) Verification
I,_______________________________________ , acknowledge that a Computerized Criminal History (CCH) check may be performed by accessing the Texas Department of Public Safety Secure
APPLICANT or EMPLOYEE NAME (Please print)
Website and may be based on name and DOB identifiers. (This is not a consent form, but serves as information for the applicant.) Authority for this agency to access an individual’s criminal history data may be found in Texas Government Code 411; Subchapter F.
Name-based information is not an exact search and only fingerprint record searches represent true identification to criminal history record information (CHRI), therefore the organization conducting the criminal history check is not allowed to discuss with me any CHRI obtained using the name and DOB method. The agency may request that I also have a fingerprint search performed to clear any misidentification based on the result of the name and DOB search.
In order to complete the fingerprint process I must make an appointment with the Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST) as instructed online at www.txdps.state.tx.us /Crime Records/Review of Personal Criminal History or by calling the DPS Program Vendor at 1-888-467-2080, submit a full and complete set of fingerprints, request a copy be sent to the agency listed below, and pay a fee of $25.00 to the fingerprinting services company.
Once this process is completed the information on my fingerprint criminal history record may be discussed with me.
(This copy must remain on file by this agency. Required for future DPS Audits)
