  • Edgewood Schools Volunteer Background Checks


The School Board recognizes that certain programs and activities can be enhanced through the use of volunteers who have particular knowledge or skills that will be helpful to members of the staff responsible for the conduct of those programs and activities. Before allowing an individual to serve as a volunteer, EDGEWOOD SCHOOLS requires a criminal history check (per board policy 8120).

To insure the ongoing safety of our students, Edgewood conducts its background checks though SafeVisitor Solutions, which allows the corporation to receive continued arrest alerts in real time beyond the date when the background check was completed.  Each volunteer will be asked to pay a fee of  $17.95 when completing the background check online. Occasionally there are additional fees for individuals who have lived in other states or for some Indiana searches typically due to researcher/court fees. These fees must also be paid before the background check will be processed.  Volunteers will receive an email from support@safehiringsolutions.com requesting payment usually within a few days if this applies.

Once submitted and approved, the SafeHire Background check is valid for 5 years.
