St. John Lutheran may request a background check on you. The background check may require the submission of your fingerprints. Refusal to submit to a background check terminates the volunteer process. You have a right to obtain a copy of the report resulting from the background check. You also have the right to challenge its accuracy. Pending completion of the background check, your access to children and youth may be limited, delayed, or denied.
I give permission for St. John Lutheran to obtain information relating to my criminal history record, including arrest and conviction data as well as plea bargains and deferred adjudication. I understand that this information, including a formal, written background check, will be used, in part, to determine my eligibility for volunteering within the SJL community.
I understand my rights and responsibilities as outline above. I certify that all of the information that I provided on this form is accurate. I understand that providing incorrect information is cause for immediate dismissal.
If approved to volunteer, I agree to be bound by the bylaws and policies of St. John Lutheran Church and School and to perform my services on behalf of the church and school in accordance with Biblical standards of conduct.
This is a legally binding agreement, which I have read and understand.
