Background Check Process for Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Mahtomedi Schools. We value the time and dedication of our volunteers! 

To ensure the safety of the buildings and students, we require criminal background checks for all parents who wish to volunteer.


The cost to the parent for this check is $10 and can be done online.  Volunteers only need to complete the background check once and the results will follow all of their students through their time with Mahtomedi Schools.  If this process should change, parents will be notified in advance.

To inquire whether you already have a cleared volunteer background check on file, please contact either the main office clerical staff at any school building or Human Resources at 651-407-2005.  

The online criminal background check form requires you to provide authorization for the following checks:
  • National Sex Offense History:  Provides a sexual offender registry check of all 50 states plus the District of Columbia.
  • MN BCA:  Bureau of Criminal Apprehension for MN, 15 year history
  • Social Security Number Trace:  Provides the name, aliases, 10 year address history, and all social security numbers associated with the individual.  Verifies that the social security number is valid, gives year of issuance and state issued. 
The background checks cost $10 and information will be kept confidential.  Human Resources will review the results of each background check.  If there are any concerns regarding the results, HR will contact the individual directly within 24-48 hours after receiving the results.
