Beginning August, 2018, all volunteers/chaperones working directly with children and not under the direct supervision of a Milford staff person, are required to have a background check. For Band, this includes parents traveling with students on away trips and competitions. One option is a BCI background check, which costs $40 and is conducted at the volunteer’s expense. A BCI check is valid for five years. The district has found a second, more affordable option. Those interested in volunteering can now complete the required background check through our Raptor system for $25. This background check is also valid for five years. Pit/Equipment volunteers not working directly with students do not need a background check done at this time.
If you are a volunteer or chaperone that needs a background check, please notify the booster president at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can supply the district with a list of band volunteers. Also, if you have already had a background check with your employer, please request a copy and provide to Milford. Dan Yeager can accept these and will give to the appropriate person. Thanks!

The Raptor system will list a variety of volunteer opportunities that require a background check: chaperone/field trip, classroom helper, club adviser, office helper, library helper, and/or mentor. Please indicate which of these volunteer activities you will be involved in on this online form.
Simply complete and submit the on-line volunteer application. Upon approval, you will receive instructions on the next steps. The $25 application fee to complete the background check is payable online.

It is important that the information you enter on the application matches your government-issued identification card including your full legal name.
