So you've received an offer of employment from EWSD, or have agreed to volunteer your time with our youth? Congratulations and thank you!
Before you begin working with the district, there are a few things you will need to complete:
1) Background Checks: In an effort to protect our students and children from exploitation and abuse, state law authorizes (and, in some cases, requires) school districts to conduct a series of background checks on prospective employees, student teachers, contractors and volunteers. A member of the HR team will contact these individuals with the paperwork required to complete the background checks, which may include any or all of the following:
> A Vermont Criminal Information Center check
> A fingerprint-supported FBI check
> A registry check with the Agency of Human Services and/or the Adult Protective Services and the Child Abuse Registry Unit
> A licensing check, vocation-specific and/or Vermont Educator disciplinary action checks
> A Vermont Department of Motor Vehicle check and/or drug testing
Although in certain cases individuals may begin working with our district prior to the background check process being completed, their continued employment is contingent on acceptable check results. Every effort must be made to complete these checks in a timely manner.
2) Employment Paperwork with the HR Team: A member of the HR department will contact individuals with the required forms and paperwork prior to their first day of work.
