Attn: All School Volunteers!
Fingerprinting at TBS – Wednesday, September 16, 6-8 p.m.
Cross one more thing off your “to do” list! The TBS PTO has hired a fingerprinting company, Central Forensic Lab, to come to our school on Wednesday, September 16 from 6-8 p.m.
Who needs to be fingerprinted/background checked and Why?
Per district policy: “school volunteers need to be fingerprinted should they participate in an activity that would leave them as the only individual supervising a group of students (field trip, recess monitors, etc.) for any extended period of time without any direct and/or indirect supervision from a staff person.” If you are a school volunteer, or plan to volunteer in the future at TBS or any of the Avon district schools, it would be good to take advantage of this opportunity.
A background check requires the following:
- filling out two state card with personal information
- having fingerprints taken by a professional company or police department
- submitting payment with cards for processing
Central Forensic Lab requires two separate checks for the following:
- $15 check made out to “Central Forensic Lab” for their services.
- $15 check make out to “Treasurer-State of CT” submitted with state green ID card
As a courtesy, the TBS PTO will submit cards to Barbara Cardwell at the Avon Board of Ed, who will submit your cards and check to the state for processing. The TBS PTO is not responsible for follow up or obtaining results with the state. You will only be notified if there is a problem with your results.
The TBS PTO has hired a company as a convenience and courtesy to our parents. Parents who are unable to attend this event are responsible for contacting the police department or independent agency to complete this district wide requirement.
In an effort to keep waiting time at a minimum, and to ensure that Central Forensic Lab is properly staffed, it would be helpful to have an approximate head count. If you plan to attend the event, please send a quick R.S.V.P. to Elizabeth Abshire as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org.
