Level 2 Background Check

Welcome to Partners in Education’s Background Check Form for Individual Volunteers.

Thank you for your willingness to volunteer in our community!
This form provides us with the information necessary to complete a Level 2 background check for you.
The cost of the background check is $25.

    Level 2 criminal background checks using Sterling Screening Service.
    A background check ensures that volunteers are cleared to work in an environment with children. Once the check is processed, each check updates on a monthly basis for one calendar year (meaning if something pops up on someone’s record mid-year, we will know about it.)
    What does Level 2 mean?: Our service covers an Advanced Criminal History Record Locator Search – which includes a Nationwide Search, Social Security Trace, Government Watch List Search (OFAC), 50 State DOJ Registered Sex Offender Search, and County Criminal Search(es).
    How does it work? Volunteer fill our our secure online form and pay us directly. The L2 background check and processing fee is $25 per person. You will be prompted for your credit card information when you complete the form.
    What happens next?
    Partners in Education will provide information to you on your cleared status and share your background check information with you. Processing time generally varies between 48 hours and five days.
    What if I’m not cleared to volunteer for some reason? Partners in Education takes the responsibility of notifying you if you are ineligible to volunteer and providing mandatory paperwork to you as a follow-up.
