VOLUNTEER CRIMINAL RECORD CHECK INSTRUCTIONS
An adult wishing to volunteer in their child’s classroom or be a field trip chaperone must obtain a criminal record check. A new background check must be submitted each school year.
To obtain a criminal record check, go to the Anderson Police Department if you live within Anderson’s city limits or to the local Sheriff’s Department if you live outside the city limits. If you live in another city, go to the police department that services your district. Let them know you are getting the record check to participate in Anderson Community Schools’ activities. There may be a small fee.
Take the record check to Valley Grove or to the Human Resources office located at the Anderson Community Schools Administration Building (located at 1600 Hillcrest Avenue—the former Forest Hills Elementary School). The staff in the reception/human resources area will run the state record and sex offender registry check and send the results to Valley Grove.
