How to Become a PCA Volunteer
- Complete the Volunteer Survey.
- Initial, sign, and date the Volunteer Code of Ethics form and return to Jodi Karnes’ attention. This form is available at the Front Desk at the Lower and Upper Schools and can be found online through the parent portal in Veracross.
- Complete the Background Check process:
Call the NH State Police Criminal Records Division at 603-223-3867 to schedule an appointment for fingerprinting. Often the most convenient location is the Dover DMV.
Come to the Lower School Reception Desk with your driver’s license and ask to have the Criminal Record Release Authorization (or background check) Form notarized.
Bring your notarized form and driver’s license to your scheduled appointment. If this is in Dover, it will be with the DMV at 50 Boston Harbor Rd, Dover, NH.
Bring the form the DMV gives you, your notarized form, and a check made out to “State of NH—Criminal Records” in the amount of $21.25, to PCA’s Lower School front desk during school hours. Let the Receptionist know you are dropping off your background check paperwork. This must be done in a timely manner, as the DMV will only hold your fingerprints for up to 30 days.
