Volunteering for Battle Ground Public Schools


To be a volunteer in Battle Ground Public Schools you must complete the Volunteer Clearance Application Process prior to being assigned to a volunteer position within a building.  The information disclosed on these forms will be used only in making the initial decision of whether you are eligible to volunteer and will not be used or disseminated for any other purpose.  This process includes the following documentation.


1.

Volunteers are welcome to request a copy of their OSP/WSP report from the Office of Human Resources.  


WSP/OSP Criminal History Background records expire after (2) years from the date of issue.  At that time you will need to renew your clearance.
