Staff Background Checks
All Staff Must Undergo a Background Check
All Drum Corps and Percussion Ensemble Staff and Administrative teams must have a background check. So must anyone instructing or teaching in any of our clinics or after school programs. (Volunteers have different standards and must use a different link).
This is in line with new policies coming down from DCI so don’t feel we’re not trusting of anyone. It’s a good practice that we want to be more consistent with. The background check is for nationwide sex offender and criminal activity, federal court, as well as statewide (and/or county) criminal database hits. These come back complete inside of 48 hours in most cases but sometimes take up to a week. We cover the cost of this service. We do not accept “proof” of a check done by any other organization. Once done – it good for up to 2 years with us.
