Volunteer Background Check

Welcome to the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District. We sincerely appreciate the investment of your time as a volunteer. Whether it is just volunteering with your child's classroom, your school's field day or in any capacity in connection with our partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters, you must complete the following Volunteer Background Authorization form online.

For the protection of students and staff, all volunteer applicants must read the Volunteer Handbook (in Español) and are asked to complete the online form authorizing the district to obtain a criminal history background check. All volunteers are required to reapply each year.

To avoid a delay in processing your online volunteer background check application, note the most common volunteer errors when completing the form:

  • not using the proper date format of mm/dd/yyyy
    Incorrect Date of Birth: 11-3-70
    Correct Date of Birth: 11/03/1970

  • if providing a maiden name, it should not be hyphenated
    Incorrect Maiden Name: Smith-Garcia
    Correct Last Name: Garcia
    Correct Maiden Name: Smith

  • if providing a maiden name, it should not include first name in the same text box
    Incorrect Maiden Name: Jennifer Farris Stevens
    Correct First Name: Jennifer
    Correct Last Name: Stevens
    Correct Maiden Name: Farris

Complete the Application Form

The school district pays for the actual background check. Due to the large number of applicants, we will not notify you of your volunteer status. To get your status, check with your school office for this information before you volunteer.
