Arco Iris School welcomes volunteers in our school and classrooms. The time our parents and community members devote to our school is what helps make our school such a great place for our kids.
Every volunteer at Arco Iris must have a criminal background check completed ONCE EVERY TWO YEARS
. Only submit one background check per adult that will be volunteering every other year. If you are unsure if you need a background check, email the volunteer coordinator ([email protected])
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 7-10 business days to complete the process, so if you would like to volunteer for a field trip or other event, please plan ahead!
To learn about specific volunteer opportunities and needs, please contact our PTO: [email protected]
Also check out our PTO page for upcoming events.

Background Check Information
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.
Please only submit a background check once – it costs the school money for each submission, even if you have already been approved.
