ANESU school volunteers must now be fingerprinted
BRISTOL — Addison Northeast School district administrators is alerting the public that there is a new process for all who wish to volunteer in the schools: Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton, Beeman and Robinson elementary schools and Mount Abraham Union High School. This applies to anyone who plans to volunteer, chaperone a field trip, or work with students at any point in the school year.
To ensure the safety of all children in the district, starting July 1, all volunteers must be fingerprinted. The prints will be taken at no charge through Bristol Police Department on a few days, which have yet to be scheduled.
If you will be volunteering the first three weeks of school, call 453-6946 to schedule an appointment to be fingerprinted on Tuesday, Aug. 29, between 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Bristol Police Department. It is important that you schedule a time as there is limited space. More dates and times for fingerprinting coming soon.
Here is what you need to know:
If you think you have current volunteer records on file, check with your school’s administrative assistant to confirm. If you do, you will only fill out the Volunteer Registration, Criminal Record Check and Agency of Human Services Forms.
If you do not have results on file, your school will provide you with the following forms: Volunteer Registration, Criminal Record Check, Agency of Human Services and VCIC Fingerprint Authorization Certificate
Completely fill out all forms.
You will need to bring two current forms of ID when you come for fingerprints (Vermont driver’s license, U.S. Passport, Military ID, birth certificate or Social Security card are all acceptable forms of identification).
Frequently Asked Questions:
When can I start volunteering? Once the initial check is done (it takes two days), you will be permitted to volunteer pending print results.
Do I have to do this every year? Once the entire process is complete and we have received all results, you are permitted to volunteer for three years without retaking prints as long as you volunteer at least once each school year. However, each year, you will fill out a volunteer form along with the two local background check forms.
