Background Check Application

PLEASE NOTE: At this time visitors, including parents and volunteers, will be limited to essential business only. Lunch visitors will not be permitted at this time. Volunteers and chaperones will be considered on a case by case basis and should expect to adhere to all guidelines and health and safety protocols. We will notify parents when we are able to revert to our normal visitor and volunteer guidelines which are listed below. 


Keeping our students, faculty, and staff safe is a top priority. Pelham City Schools requires the successful completion of a criminal background check for those serving as a volunteer, chaperone, or other sponsor for K-12 activities as outlined below: 

  • School Volunteers
  • Parents and others who participate in any activities to assist or chaperone students. Activities would include field trips and any other activities designated by the principal. Field Day participants who assist with activities require a background check.
  • Any other activities that require the supervision and care of students.

To make this process quick and confidential, we work with a screening company that conducts the background check online. The cost is $15.
