Chaperone & Volunteer Background (ICHAT) Request (2023-2024)
Lincoln Consolidated Schools, in an effort to ensure the safety and security of its students, is continuing our safety procedure for field trip chaperones and volunteers.
It is necessary for all parents/guardians who will be chaperoning field trips or volunteering in a classroom to provide information for a criminal conviction/background check. This information will be sent to the Human Resources office and checked through the ICHAT (Internet Criminal History Access Tool) database. It is only the Department of Human Resources that is authorized to access the ICHAT database on behalf of the school district. Your child's school will be able to access a list of parents that are eligible to act as chaperones and volunteers for that school. Except where disclosure is required by law, the list of approved chaperones and volunteers will be shared only with the staff on a need to know basis and will be kept only for the current school year.
Parents may elect not to be screened. Please note that if you are not screened you will not be able to volunteer in the school or chaperone any field trips.
If you have any questions, please contact Department of Human Resources, at 734-484-7002.
