SafeVisitor Entry

Sheridan Community Schools
Volunteer/Visitor Process

Sheridan Community Schools will not be requiring all volunteers and visitors to have a background check through Safe Visitor Solutions which will include an Arrest Alert.

Arrest Alert:
If aa volunteer is arrested at any point after their background check has been submitted, an alert will be immediately marked in the SafeVisitor Portal and the volunteer's status will be switched from Approved to Pending and the individual will not be permitted to volunteer/visit until an investigation is concluded.

The cost of the background check is currently $15.95, however the cost of the arrest alert will be going up starting September 1, 2023.  The base cost for a backgrouond check will not be $32.45 beginning September 1, 2023.  This raise in cost is through the background check company and not due to a decision made by Sheridan Community Schools.

Background checks need to be submitted at least two weeks prior to visiting the school/event.  There is a possibility that additional funds will be required for the background check as some counties throughout the United States require fees for court records.  SafeVisitor Solutions will email you asking for the additional funds if necessary.  The cost may vary from $1 to $99 per county.  To pay the additional funds or to ask for additional information, you can call SafeVisitor Solutions toll-free number for assistance at (888)215-8296.

When evaluating criminal background checks, if the following charges appear on a volunteer background check, the person will not be permitted to volunteer in our schools.   Volunteer criminal background checks are evaluated on charges filed, not the disposition of the charges.
  • No felony convictions
  • No battery convictions
  • No sexual offenses
  • No crimes against children
  • No misdemeanor convictions in the past 5 years
  • 2 or more DUI's or alcohol related charges within the last five (5) years
  • No pending cases for disqualifying felony or misdemeanors
  • No open warrants or arrests with pending adjudication
If a person is not permitted to volunteer in our schools due to pending charges, at the time pending charges are resolved, the volunteer's status will be re-evaluated.

A status determination appeal may be filed with the Superintendent's Office.  A committee wil examine the report and the intial determination and make final recommondations to the Superintendent concerning the volunteer's status.  Please contact Leslie Price to request an appeal at
