Every volunteer at Arco Iris must have a criminal background check completed on a yearly basis. Because the school district does not share background check results, you must complete this process for Arco Iris even if you have completed it for BSD. It takes approximately 2 business days to complete the process, so if you would like to volunteer for a field trip or other event, please plan ahead!
Arco Iris contracts with CRIS, Inc. to support our background check services. The NWESD currently supports dozens of school districts in Oregon with the CRIS background check for volunteers. The system checks against numerous databases including, but not limited to: Department of Corrections (DOC)/Public Safety Records, State Court Records (AOC), County Criminal Court (CCO), County Sheriff Arrest (CSO), Registered Sex Offenders (RSO), National Motor Vehicle records, and Social Security verification.
