Posted on: September 12, 2018

For the safety of Milford students, all volunteers/chaperones working directly with children and not under the direct supervision of a Milford staff person, are required to have a background check. One option is a BCI background check, which costs $40 and is conducted at the volunteer's expense. A BCI check is valid for five years. The district has found a second, more affordable option. Those interested in volunteering can now complete the required background check through our Raptor system for $25. This background check is also valid for five years.
Completing Your Raptor Background Check
  • To initiate your background check, access the Raptor website.
  • The Raptor system will list a variety of volunteer opportunities that require a background check: chaperone/field trip, classroom helper, club advisor, office helper, library helper, and/or mentor. Please indicate which of these volunteer activities you will be involved in on this online form.
  • Simply complete and submit a volunteer application and upon approval, you will receive instructions on the next steps. The $25 application fee to complete the background check is payable online.
  • Volunteers will receive an email from Raptor Tech once the application has been approved. Applications may take up to 72 hours to be processed.
  • It is important that the information you enter on the application matches your government-issued identification card including your full legal name.
  • All information collected on the application will remain confidential and not be shared outside the volunteer program.
Please contact your building principal if you have any questions.
