Volunteer background screening
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Maize USD 266! Our schools are stronger thanks to the help and support of our community members, and our students benefit from this relationship.
Safety is a top priority for the district, which since 2008 has conducted background checks of potential volunteers. This, however, comes at a cost: During the 2015-16 school year alone, Maize USD 266 spent about $13,300 on background screenings.
This year, Maize Schools is asking our volunteers to please consider helping us cover that cost, allowing the district to continue to invest as much of our budget as possible into our teachers and classrooms.
To volunteer in Maize South Elementary:
- Please click here to begin your Self-Pay background check process through the National Screening Bureau. After providing some information about yourself, you will be prompted to pay $22 by credit or debit card on a secure system, and you will receive a receipt via email. (The National Screening Bureau uses a secure server and cutting-edge screening technology in order to protect your privacy.)
Maize Schools does not wish to discourage any potential volunteer from getting involved in our classrooms and with our students.
- Please click here to begin the same background process at no cost to yourself, and Maize USD 266 will pay for your background screening.
Thank you for your continued support of our students and district!
