Each adult who plans to volunteer at the school, do playground duty or have substantial contact with youth MUST:
(A) Become certified by completing the following four steps:
1. Register with Virtus Online at www.virtusonline.org/virtus/reg_0.cfm?theme=0. When you register, you will need to create a UserID and Password and enroll for a mandatory Child Protection Workshop. Volunteers must attend a workshop before your duties begin.
To register for a Child Protection Workshop, go to www.adw.org/news/default.asp?eventtype=14.
(IMPORTANT NOTE: The name under which you register for Virtus must match the name you provide on the Volunteer Application Form under Step 2 and on the Criminal Background Investigation Authorization (CBIA) Form you are given under Step 4.) The Archdiocese will give you credit for attending the class based on a sign-in sheet available at the class. Please be sure to sign in and please print your name clearly so you receive credit for attending.
2. Complete the two-page Volunteer Application Form, which is available for download/printing at www.adw.org/youth/pdf/cpp_volapp2006.pdf, and mail/deliver the signed hardcopy form to the Parish Compliance Coordinator (PCC), whose contact information is given below.
(IMPORTANT NOTE: Steps 1 & 2 are interchangeable, but must occur before Step 4).
3. After receiving a Child Protection Policy Booklet from the training class or downloading the Booklet from www.adw.org/youth/pdf/cpp_english07.pdf, review the Booklet and sign and mail/deliver the Booklet’s Acknowledgment page (one of the last pages in Booklet) to the Parish Coordinator (Marylou McDonald), whose information is given below.
4. After receiving a CBIA form from the Front Office of the school (or Marylou McDonald, if the school is closed), make an appointment to be fingerprinted. See: www.adw.org/youth/pdf/cpp_fingerprint08.pdf for instructions/locations and dates for fingerprinting.(IMPORTANT NOTE: An Adult Leader does not need not take a copy of the Volunteer Application Form with him/her when getting fingerprinted, but instead must take (a) the CBIA form received at Front Office in HR school (or Marylou McDonald) (b) a check or money order payable to CJIS (Fee is $36); and (c) a valid photo ID.)
