Complete Your 2020-2021 Criminal Background Check

Big picture
In order to volunteer on any McKinney ISD campus, you are required to complete and pass an annual criminal background check.


Below is the link and information from the district website for you to complete your annual criminal background check. We encourage you to complete your background check sooner than later. At the beginning of the school year, it may take longer for your background check to be approved due to the high volume of parents completing the process.


The volunteer grace period for parents that passed their criminal background check for the 2019-2020 school year, will expire on Wednesday, September 30th.


We look forward to seeing YOU at school soon.
