Commitment to Confidentiality
Yukon Public Schools will require a criminal background check on all persons participating in volunteer activities with our district. This includes, but is not limited to, YPS Helping Hand Volunteers, Mentors, Homeroom Parents, Field Trip Chaperones, Parent/Teacher Organizations, Booster Clubs, and Watch Dog Dads. While background check information is public information, Yukon Public Schools will maintain strict confidentiality of the information collected as a result of the background check process. Information will be shared only with those who have a need to know. In the event a third party must be used to complete the background check, Yukon Public Schools will comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Click here
