Fingerprinting for Volunteers and Chaperones

The Gilford School District welcomes volunteers in our schools.

A fingerprint background check is required in all Gilford schools for individuals, volunteers and chaperones engaged in the following activities:
  • classroom volunteers
  • chaperones on field trips
  • assisting at school activities such as dances, plays and concerts
  • volunteer coach
Once a thorough background investigation and criminal records check is complete with no disqualifying records and the volunteer has completed orientation, the volunteer will be issued an identification badge to be worn every time the volunteer works in the school.  Click here for complete volunteer fingerprinting procedure.  

Fingerprint clinics are scheduled at the SAU office located at  2 Belknap Mountain Road.  A photo ID is required for identification.  

The next fingerprint clinic is scheduled for Thursday, August 22, 2019 ~ 8:00 a.m. at the SAU Office

The process takes approximately 20 minutes.  New sessions start every ten minutes.
Photos will be taken for ID badge.
