VOLUNTEER INFORMATION FORM - FORM 1212 Volunteer form Click hereThis form must be completed each school year and returned to the school office in which you want to volunteer. Upon completion of this form a member of the office staff will perform an initial check of the sex offender list. Should the search result in a clean check, you will be placed on the school volunteer list for that building. The volunteer’s name will be checked against the sex offender list every time the person enters the building as a volunteer.
Fingerprinting will not be required again unless there is a break in the volunteer’s service. A break in service is described as a school year in which Form 1212 has not been completed.
Yes, provided you are currently an active substitute on the NF Sub List (contact Human Resources to verify). If you are not active, the fingerprints must have been taken within the past 12 months or another background check must be conducted.
If you have been fingerprinted to substitute or work in another district, does that suffice?
Yes, if you were fingerprinted by Education Connection or one of its sister organizations (e.g., ACES) within the past 12 months. Given the name and last four digits of the Social Security number, Human Resources can ask Ed Conn for results. If you were printed by a sister organization you must contact that group to have results released to Ed Conn. We do not accept background checks from other municipalities.
If you have had background checks for any other reason, does that suffice?
No, you must be fingerprinted at the New Fairfield Police Department on the cards provided by the Human Resources department.
