Fall 08 Getting Involved

Background Screen Form


In order to provide an additional layer of security for our students, volunteers, and staff, GIVE will require YEARLY Background Screening for each volunteer from the Michigan State Police. The screening information will be received and reviewed by a School Administrative Representative. In the event a volunteer's screening reveals a conviction record in the areas of: assault and battery of a minor or mentally handicapped person, criminal sexual conduct in all degrees involving a minor, kidnapping of a minor, distribution and trafficking of controlled substances, or intent to commit any of these crimes, the volunteer will be notified of immediate suspension and may request a hearing with the GIVE legal counsel. The volunteer may be reinstated contingent on the outcome of the hearing.

Any volunteer who refuses to provide information necessary for the background screening, will be excluded from participation in the GIVE program.

If any volunteer commits an applicable crime after they have had police clearance, it is their responsibility to contact the School Administrative Representative to have their name discreetly removed voluntarily from the GIVE database list. GIVE database lists are posted in all of the schools and accessible to staff as well as community members. 

GIVE prefers that everyone utilize the new, safe, simple-to-use electronic form.
