Background Checks for Parent Volunteers

The University of Utah requires all staff, faculty, and volunteers who work with minors to complete a Youth Protection training and a background check every 3 years. If you are a new CDT parent, or if you completed this training prior to 2017, you must complete the training and background check by December 2, 2019.

Background Checks
At least one parent from each family is required to initiate a background check, which will last for three years. The background check costs $13. Those who complete the background check will receive 2 hours of volunteer time.

The University also accepts documentation of a background check from a public school through a local school district from the past three years in lieu of a background check through the University. You may send that documentation to
