To qualify to work as a contractor for Salem-Keizer Public Schools you must first complete a Contractor Criminal History Check Release & Authorization form. This authorizes the district to perform a criminal history background check. Information from your background check may be considered in evaluating your qualifications for working within the district.
Responding to Suspected Child Abuse
As a contractor, you may interact with students who have been the victims of abuse or neglect. You may question how you should respond to such concerns. The PDF Responding to Suspected Child Abuse: Guidelines for Salem-Keizer School District Volunteers provides the process to follow if you suspect that a child at school is the victim of abuse. Please read the information carefully and speak with an administrator if you have questions.
