My daughter class is going to a waterpark about a hour and 30 minutes from school and Friday the teacher sent a background check form for my DH and I to fill out and I felt it to be weird because I never heard of any background check forms until now,so I called the teacher and asked and her reply was because the class is going to the water park far away for 8 hours it was the school new policy but I worked for the school district as a teacher and secretary and they never asked me for a background check.The teacher also stated all parents attending the trip would have to fill out the forms or they will not be able to attend.I have a clean background(thank God)but I just don't understand the meaning of a background check ,then on another aspect I kinda can see the cautions and dangers of things.Has anyone ever had to fill out a background check form for going on a field trip with their kid(s)??????????????????????????/Answer Question

The school where I teach requires it for anyone volunteering at the school to work with students. That includes chaperones for trips.
Very rarely are people turned away. If you have a minor offense or an old offense you are usually cleared to go by the district. I assume most people with more serious offenses don't apply in the first place.
I know it's an inconvenience, but think about who you'd want with your child on a field trip. Just like employees are screened, we need to make no one dangerous is around the students.
