APIE’s Background Check for Direct Contact Volunteers

Thank you so much for working with our students! We really appreciate your time. The safety of our students is important to us and Davis requires all direct contact volunteers submit their information for a background check through Austin Partners in Education (APIE). Direct contact volunteers are those that work 1-on-1 with students, chaperone and drive students on field trips.  Background checks must be renewed yearly.

  • To have a background check run, go to Austin Partners in Education
  • Select the School-Based Volunteers link, select Davis Elementary School
  • Follow the instructions on the screen (no donation required)
