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/sites/g/files/ehbemt326/files/inline-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 department at the SAU office.  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 SAU 21 staff member, is subject to a background check.  SAU 21 volunteers are asked to contact our Human Resources Department at fingerprinting@sau21.org to schedule an appointment.  Fingerprinting is offered one day a week at the SAU office.  Upon completion of the criminal background check, Human Resources will contact the individual district who is documenting approved volunteers.  Thank you for your continued support.
