Additional information about Criminal Background Checks for the Wausau School District:

When a Background Check is NOT REQUIRED:

  1. You are employed by the Wausau School District.
  2. You’ve been approved since the 2021-22 school year.
  3. When a Volunteer is assisting for a singular event or an activity where they will not be individually responsible for supervision of students:
    a. These are one time presenters, visitors, or helpers, not familial volunteers.
    b. These volunteers will use the Raptor system as they enter the building and check in at the main office.

When a Background Check IS REQUIRED:

  1. Any Volunteer chaperoning a field trip, helping in class or any school event involving students.
  2. If someone is a REGULAR and/or ONGOING Volunteer, they will need to complete a background check. Familial volunteers should all complete the check as it is assumed they would participate more than once over the student’s education.

ONE volunteer…ONE hour…ONE day…can make a difference in the life of a child.
Thank you again for your time and involvement in one of our greatest resources, our students!
