Mandatory Background Check

Brunswick School Department is committed to ensuring that all students learn in safe environments. As such, all individuals interested in volunteering must undergo a background check through the Maine Department of Public Safety. Please provide your date of birth for this background check. Findings will remain confidential.


Confidentiality (FERPA)

Confidentiality is one of the most important aspects of being a volunteer with the Brunswick School Department. As a volunteer, you may encounter sensitive information due to self-disclosure by students, direct observation of activities, or by other means. This could include names of students, special programming provided to students, academic work, and/or behavioral information. It is critical that you treat such information with extreme confidentiality. Protecting the privacy of all students and their families is the law as protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Remaining confidential is essential and no information about students may be shared with others outside of the school.
