Screening methods include interviews, written information, personal contacts, references and criminal background checks. Please note that you must first obtain a signed permission form from the applicant to run a criminal background check.
Once you have permission from the applicant, there are a couple of options for obtaining a background check.
NATIONAL BACKGROUND CHECKS (recommended by the KAC Safe Sanctuary Policy)
Other Online Screening Companies
KENTUCKY STATE CHECK (minimum required by the KAC Safe Sanctuary Policy)
Contact the Office of Connectional Ministries at 1-800-530-7236 for additional questions.
Regardless of which option you choose to run the background checks, all forms and reference reports should be kept as a part of an applicant's personnel file. The person responsible for the children or youth activity(ies) and/or their designee is responsible for reviewing and following up on each application prior to service.
Sex Offender Registries (Megan's Law)
We recommend checking these sites, but they are not fully adequate for background screening.
