It is the policy of the Emery County School District that all support staff employees undergo, at their own expense, a criminal background check as part of their initial employment and at least every six (6) years in accordance with USBE Rule R277-516-4(2). Volunteer coaches or any volunteers who have unsupervised access to students will be required to undergo a background check. If schools choose to use volunteer coaches or to use any volunteers in their schools that are given unsupervised access to students, the school will be responsible to pay for the background checks for these individuals.
