In an effort to ensure safety for students and staff, effective October 1, 2022, Wayzata Public Schools will require background checks for all volunteers.
Volunteer background checks will need to be completed for anyone coming into the school to provide a service (for example, shelving or checking out books in the media center, running the book fair, reading books to students, assisting a classroom teacher and field trips). Background checks are not required for activities outside of the established school day, when having lunch with your child or attending concerts or performances.
Background checks remain in effect for three years and one background check gives you access to all district schools if you have more than one child. A background check costs $10 (Payment must be made online by credit or debit card).
