Criminal Record Review
All non-teaching employees and uncertified teachers on call must submit to a Criminal Record Check before they can commence work. An external agency undertakes the Criminal Record Review Program.
Electronic Criminal Record Check (eCRC) Online Service
The Ministry of Justice provides an electronic Criminal Record Check service. Criminal Record Check applications are completed and submitted electronically. The Ministry charges a $28 fee for this service. Applicants can choose to pay the $28 during the application process using a personal credit card, or can choose to pay the School District directly by cash, cheque or money order made payable to School District No. 85. Please contact Christine Ley at the School Board Administration Office via email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (250)-949-6618 ext. 2235 to receive a web link and a personal access code in order to complete the CRC online application. Once applications are submitted, results will be forward to the School District Office within approximately one week.
Volunteers (not in a paid position) at schools must complete the RCMP criminal record check process. Please see the last section below.
