Many years ago, the Texas Legislature charged school districts with performing criminal history checks on employees and volunteers. That process is handled by the Boerne ISD Human Resources Department. Certain employees in the Department are trained and certified by the Texas Department of Public Safety to perform criminal history checks. They are the only ones allowed to do so. The entire process is confidential as a matter of law.
Our duty and responsibility is to make every effort to assure the safety and security of Boerne ISD students. Therefore if we are to err, we choose to err on the side of caution.
There are many reasons why parents, families, and community members volunteer each school year and those contributions are invaluable. Thank you for wanting to make a difference in the lives of our students.
