Dear school volunteers,
If you have a Criminal Background Check with vulnerable sector screening on
file at the school, you are now required to complete the Halton District School
Board's Annual Offence Declaration each year.
The Education Act empowers boards to collect personal information under section
315, subsections 1, 2 and 3. Thus the requirement of a Police Record Check may
be authorized by a board “to ensure the safety of pupils". Personal
information is defined in s. 315(3) as having “the same meaning as in s. 38 of
Freedom of Information and protection of Privacy Act and s. 28 of the Municipal
Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act".
Please print and complete the attached form if you are volunteering at Garth
Webb Secondary School this year, unless your Police Check is current from 2016.
Please send completed forms to the main office prior to volunteering.
This form is also available under "FORMS" on the Garth Webb Secondary
School website "PARENT INFO" tab.
We thank you for your cooperation.
