Volunteer Background Check Application
Welcome to the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District. We sincerely appreciate the investment of your time as a volunteer. Whether it is just volunteering with your child's classroom, your schools field day, or in any capacity in connection with our partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters, you must complete the following Volunteer Background Authorization form online.
For the protection of students and staff, all volunteer applicants are asked to complete the online form authorizing the district to obtain a criminal history background check. All volunteers are required to reapply each year.
To avoid a delay in processing your online volunteer background check application, note the most common volunteer errors when completing the form:
-not using the proper date format of mm/dd/yyyy
Incorrect Date of Birth: 11-3-70
Correct Date of Birth: 11/03/1970
-if providing a maiden name, it should not be hyphenated
Incorrect Maiden Name: Smith-Garcia
Correct Last Name: Garcia
Correct Maiden Name: Smith
-if providing a maiden name, it should not include first name in the same text box
Incorrect Maiden Name: Jennifer Farris Stevens
Correct First Name: Jennifer
Correct Last Name: Stevens
Correct Maiden Name: Farris
The school district pays for the actual background check. Due to the large number of applicants, we will not notify you of your volunteer status. To get your status, check with your school office for this information before you volunteer.
