Background Check
The Elk Grove Unified School District requires that all volunteer candidates who work with students be fingerprinted as part of a criminal background check. Even volunteers that work under the direct supervision of a District employee need to be fingerprinted.

The fingerprint check is done by the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Both agencies provide the district with a record of prior convictions or pending arrests or citations. The district reviews this report with specific interest in the history of offenses, pattern of offenses, time of offenses and for drug crimes, sexual crimes or serious or violent felonies. After receiving and reviewing the fingerprint reports, volunteer candidates may be authorized as volunteers, based upon the discretion of the District, and must be cleared or authorized as volunteers, prior to contact with students. This is the same background check that district employees must pass prior to being hired.

Volunteers are not charged for fingerprinting. The service is available in Room 103-A in the Robert L. Trigg Education Center, 9510 Elk Grove-Florin Road, Elk Grove, CA 95624. The fingerprinting service is available by appointment. Office hours are subject to change. For more information please call (916) 686-7795, ext. 67172.

Fingerprinting Office Hours

8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday
Closed from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. for Lunch
*Closed Fridays/Office Hours Subject to Change
