Volunteers and Approval Process

Recently SAU 21 has revised its procedure for fingerprinting and background checks to align with the 9/12/2017 Department of Education Technical Advisory. https://www.education.nh.gov/standards/documents/criminal-history-check.pdf

This procedure, which is now required in all of the SAU 21 districts, includes a criminal background check authorized through the Human Resources office at the SAU.  Any school volunteer who may chaperone and/or participate in a school event which may result in him/her independently monitoring students without the supervision of a SAU21 staff member is subject to a background check.  SAU21 volunteers are asked to contact our Human Resources Assistant, at the SAU 21 Human Resources office (603-926-8992 x110) and bring the accompanying form to their fingerprinting appointment.  Fingerprinting occurs on Tuesdays at the SAU. Volunteers who cannot make an appointment on Tuesday, or have any other concerns, should contact Sandy Kane to make other arrangements for criminal records instruction. Upon completion of the criminal background check, Sandy Kane will contact the Administrative Assistant at the individaual district who is documenting approved volunteers.  Dependent upon demand, SAU 21 Human Resources may arrange an afternoon/evening for parent/guardians to complete the background check. Thank you for your continued support.
