Volunteer Background Check

Volunteer Background Check Form


Dear Parents/Guardians:

The Novi Community School District is privileged to have the continuous support of our 

parent/guardian community. While we welcome parent/guardian volunteers, it is important 

that we follow Board policy 3120.09 specific to volunteers which states, “Any volunteer who 

works or has access to students shall be screened through the Internet sites for the Sex 

Offenders Registry (SOR) list, the Internet Criminal History Access Tool (ICHAT) criminal 

history records check and the Offender Tracking Information System (OTIS) prior to being 

allowed to participate in any activity or program.” It is with sincere gratitude and 

appreciation that we welcome the support of volunteers; however, we must ensure the 

safety and security of our students and staff at each building by following Board policy. 

It is also important to remind all volunteers that they shall agree to abide by all Board 

policies and District guidelines while on duty as a volunteer. This includes, but is not limited 

to, following the sign-in procedures established at each building, wearing proper 

identification while volunteering, maintaining confidentiality of each student, reporting all 

behavior concerns to the lead teacher and/or building principal, refraining from disciplining 

or touching students in a corrective manner, and wearing appropriate attire for a business 


If you desire to serve as a volunteer at your child’s school, you are required to complete the 

Volunteer Background Check Authorization Form and at all buildings. The authorization form may be returned in a

sealed envelope to the main office of your child’s school or send directly to:

Educational Services Building

Attention: Human Resources

25345 Taft Road, Novi, MI 48374.

This process must be done prior to volunteering and on an annual basis (each school year) 

to ensure the safety and security of all of our students and staff district wide.

Thank you for your support!
