School Volunteer Background Check Fees to Increase Nov. 1

Starting Nov. 1, 2018, the price for Polk County Public Schools volunteer background checks will increase from $25 to $40.

To coincide with the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, we’re tightening security measures to protect our students, faculty and staff. The increased price for background checks will include: a national background check, Social Security number verification, address verification, multiple name/alias check and terror watch list check.

Volunteers are required to reapply and renew their background check every five years from the date of their application approval.

As a benefit of the new system coming in November, volunteers will be able to apply and make payments online, and the application process will be faster and more efficient.

For now, those wishing to become an approved volunteer should visit www.polkschoolsfl.com/getinvolved, print an application, fill it out, and submit it to the school where you would like to volunteer.

Please see the attached flyer or visit https://tinyurl.com/ybhlb3dv for complete details.

Welcome To Our Family!

Caldwell Elementary staff are committed to giving every child on a campus a powerful day of learning. We love to create engaging experiences for our students and you will regularly see our staff dressed in costumes, playing games, singing and snapping pictures with our students!

We believe in telling our story about the magical and powerful things happening on campus during the day. You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the positive things we are doing with our school family.

Our staff and students are each a member of a ‘house’. Each house brings a different strength to create ONE SCHOOL. During the year, each house can earn points for their house and we recognize a house leader at the end of each 9 weeks.
