Bolivar Schools volunteer background process

Friday, 11 March 2016 10:12

 Any Bolivar R-1 School District parent or volunteer in a position where they may be left alone with a single child or small groups of children – such as a Watch Dog Dad, Liberator mentors, classroom volunteer, field trip chaperon, etc. - must have a cleared background check through the Missouri Family Care Safety Registry.

There are three ways to complete the process.

1.       ONLINE: Please go to to register. There is a one-time fee of $13.25 to complete the background check. Print a copy of your receipt along with the Background Check Permission Form, and bring to the school to be reimbursed. 

2.       PAPER/PENCIL: Complete a paper copy of the Background Check Form (WORKER REGISTRATION) with an attached copy of your social security card and submit to Central Office at 524 W. Madison, Bolivar. The district will submit your form to the Missouri Family Care Safety Registry.  Please note: The mailed version will take 4 to 6 weeks to receive results back. 

3.       ALREADY HAVE A CHECK ON FILE? Visit  and click on “Is a Person Registered” tab to check. If you are, complete the Background Check Permission Form.  This will allow the school district to access your results if you have had a prior background check, and to allow us to update our records.


For more information, contact Central Office at 417-326-5291 or your child’s building.
