In order to keep our school as safe as possible, we have changed our background check policy for volunteers. Criminal background checks are now required for ALL volunteers who have contact with students and serve as drivers and/or chaperones on field trips. The deadline for completing your background checks is February 4, 2013.

We have contracted with Certified Background to conduct our background checks. Instructions on how to complete the background check are provided below. In order to volunteer with our school, you will need to complete the background check at least 10 business days before your first volunteer day and/or field trip. After February 4, 2013, volunteers will not be allowed to volunteer until they have been cleared.

If you believe you will be volunteering at any time this school year, we encourage you to have your background check run before you need it. We will not be able to make exceptions to our new policy.


  • will have supervised and/or  unsupervised contact with students;
  • has a regular and ongoing assignment at the school;
  • will be off campus with students in an unsupervised situation, including driving students on field trips;
  • is a coach or activity director; or
  • is unknown to the school or department staff.

Our Human Resources Coordinator, Anna Foley, supervises the background checks for the school. All information is handled in a confidential manner.


You have two choices for conducting your background check:

  1. CertifiedProfile is a secure platform that allows you to order your background check online from home. The cost for the background check is $20 if you pay with VISA or Mastercard. In order to complete this process you must:
    1. Go to www.CertifiedBackground.com and enter package code CU85basic under place order.
    2. You will be directed to set up your CertifiedProfile account.
    3. In addition to entering your full name and date of birth, you will be asked for your social security number, current address, phone number and e-mail address.
    4. At the end of the online order process, you will be promted to enter your VISA or Mastercard information.
    5. Your results will be posted directly to your CertifiedProfile account. You will be notified if there is any missing information needed in order to process your order. Your order will be shown as “In Process”until it has been completed in its entirety.
    6. The Human Resources Coordinator will be able to securely view the results online with their username and password.
  1. If you prefer, the Human Resources Coordinator will run the background check at the school for free.
    1. She will only be available to do this on Mondays from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. or in special circumstances by appointment.
    2. You will need to contact Anna Foley at afoley@cemcs.org if you wish to have the school run the background check.
    3. You must show up at the school in person to access this option.



In addition to the above volunteer background check, the school must receive the following information 10 days before the field trip for which you plan to drive:

  • a copy of valid Driver’s License
  • proof of valid car insurance (insurance must be valid at time of trip)
