Criminal Records Check Procedure: For the safety of the ACS students and staff, and in accordance with Federal Law, ALL volunteers must complete a Criminal Records Check. This process takes time to complete, sometimes up to a month. Please follow these steps to allow the process to move along smoothly and as quickly as possible:

    1. Submit a completed Volunteer Registration Form, found under the "Volunteering at ACS" tab, to the Volunteer Coordinator through the Main Office.  The Coordinator will provide a "Criminal History Record Release" (CHRR) form to be brought to the fingerprinting appointment.
    2. Have fingerprint scan completed at the Alton Police Department. 
    3. Return the CHRR form AND the Livescan Fingerprinting acknowledgement form provided at the police department to the Volunteer Coordinator within five days.  There is a strict deadline to be met by the SAU in order to complete the process.
    4. The SAU will notify the Volunteer Coordinator when they have received the results from the state.
    5. The Volunteer Coordinator will notify you when you have been cleared to begin volunteering at ACS.
