Criminal Background Check / Clearance

Criminal Background Check / Clearance

All of our partner organizations require that volunteers complete criminal background checks before becoming tutors or mentors. The specific process and requirements vary depending on the partner but the DC Public Schools (DCPS) clearance process is the most frequently required. As of July 2021, it typically takes 10-14 days before you will be notified by DCPS of your clearance.
