School volunteers are a key part of a successful school and the Lake Dallas ISD encourages public involvement at all levels of the District. In the interest of safety and security, the Lake Dallas Independent School District is authorized to obtain criminal history information on all volunteers (Texas Education Code Section 2.083). All volunteers at Lake Dallas ISD campuses must complete a criminal history background check, online, at the LDISD website.
- All volunteers should allow up to 3 weeks for processing.
- To verify that you have been included in the Volunteer Data Bank, please contact your child's campus.
How often does the District require a Criminal History Check to be run?
The District requires ALL volunteers to reapply each school year. By completing this application online, you are also agreeing with an electronic signature to having us request this background check. The school district pays for the actual background check; principals will have access to the "real time" volunteer list. The information obtained in this release form and through the background check will remain confidential within the school system and will be viewed by only select District personnel. The district reserves the right to re-check the criminal history of any volunteer during the school year when information or circumstances indicate the need.
