All parents who wish to chaperone ANY overnight school trip are now required by the Bartow County School System to undergo a background check and be fingerprinted. NO EXCEPTIONS at all. The cost of the background check is $50 and must be a money order made out to BCBOE.
Once you complete a successful background check you will be issued a "Blue Card". You will need to turn in a COPY of your blue card to the SCMS Band Boosters before you will be allowed to chaperone any overnight trip.
Each year you have to return to the BCSS main office and get a new blue card. There is no charge for this renewal.
YES, the SCMS Band Boosters will need a COPY of your newly issued blue card.
To get your background check and blue card contact:
