Volunteer District Background Checks

Background Checks

Each year, hundreds of volunteers share their time with the students of the St. Michael-Albertville School District. Every school in the STMA school district welcomes and appreciates volunteers.

Volunteer background checks are part of our efforts to keep our schools safe for students, staff, and visitors. Please see below to learn how to complete your secure background check. There is a $15.00 fee to have a background check processed through the school district. This is a one-time fee that lasts throughout your child's education. To learn more about volunteer opportunities in your child's school, please contact your child's school building's front office.

School classroom volunteers and chaperones must have a one-time background check completed by ISD 885. Please click on the link below to start the process! The one-time fee to process a background check is $15.00 and all major credit cards are accepted. 

For any questions, please contact Human Resources at (763) 497-6504 or

Bullying, like other violent or disruptive behavior, is conduct that interferes with a student’s ability to learn and/or a teacher’s ability to educate students in a safe environment. No teacher, administrator, volunteer, contractor, or other employees of the school district shall permit, condone, or tolerate bullying. Any person who believes he or she has been the target or victim of bullying or any person with knowledge or belief of conduct that may constitute bullying or prohibited conduct under this policy shall report the alleged acts immediately to an appropriate school district official designated by the Bullying Prohibition Policy. A person may report bullying anonymously.

“Bullying” means intimidating, threatening, abusive, or harming conduct that is objectively offensive and

1. an actual or perceived imbalance of power exists between the student engaging in the prohibited conduct and the target of the prohibited conduct, and the conduct is repeated or forms a pattern; or

2. materially and substantially interferes with a student’s educational opportunities or performance or ability to participate in school functions or activities or receive school benefits, services, or privileges.

A teacher, school administrator, volunteer, contractor, or other school employees shall be particularly alert to possible situations, circumstances, or events that might include bullying. Any such person who witnesses, observes, or receives a report of, or has other knowledge or belief of conduct that may constitute bullying or other prohibited conduct shall make reasonable efforts to address and resolve the bullying or prohibited conduct and shall inform the building report taker (generally, the building principal) immediately.
