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 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.  

In order to complete the online CRC application, a web link and personal access code are required. To receive the link and access code, please contact Christine Ley at the School Board Administration Office via email cley@sd85.bc.ca or telephone (250)-949-6618 ext. 2235.

It is very important that the applicant enter their personal information accurately and completely. Once applications are submitted, results will be forward to the School District Office and may take up to 4 weeks.

School Volunteers

Every person who wishes to volunteer in a school must obtain a criminal record check completed by the local R.C.M.P. The completed form must be provided to each school where the person wishes to volunteer.  The R.C.M.P. may charge a fee for this service.  The Board requires volunteers to obtain a new criminal record check every two years.
