It is a priority of the Tippecanoe School Corporation to provide a safe learning environment for all of our students and employees. In an effort to continue our due diligence, we now require all volunteers having ongoing contact with children and/or supervising students (field trips, etc.) to have cleared an expanded criminal background check. These background checks are conducted through Background Investigation Bureau (BIB).
The criminal background check will search national sex offender databases, court records, and other sources. The cost of the criminal history check is $17.95 (base cost) and is paid for by the volunteer through a link on our website.
Once approved, the volunteer will receive a TSC Volunteer identification card that will be valid for a period of three years. Anyone who volunteers in multiple buildings will only need to complete one background check.
Volunteer background checks may take several business days to process so it is important to plan ahead.
We appreciate your understanding of this important safety guideline.
