Background Check

All individuals seeking to volunteer within Northwestern School Corporation must have a current background check on file with the corporation office.  


To apply for a background check follow the link above.  Select "volunteer” in the position drop down menu.  It is important to understand that this is only the first step in the process.  Once you order the background check, complete with payment, you will receive two emails from KidTraks@dcs.in.gov.  


The Kidtraks emails will be sent to the email address you provided to Safe Hiring Solutions. One will provide you with a password and the second will provide you with a link to access the site.  All information needs to be completed and submitted to finalize the background check.  Please allow up to two weeks for processing (this sometimes can take longer). 

When completing KidTraks you must be using a computer or laptop, the system is not set up to be used on a mobile device or tablet.

**The request from KidTraks does expire.

**If you fail to complete this step your background check will be deemed incomplete and not in compliance and you will not be able to volunteer, attend field trips, or coach.

Background checks are good for 5 years.  If you think you already have a background check contact your school’s office or the corporation office to verify and/or check the expiration date.
