Nevada PTA

Advocacy

Resolution (Passed at state convention May 12, 2018)

Back Ground Checks and Fingerprinting Financial Burden

Whereas in 2017 the Nevada Legislature passed SB287 The Child Protect Law requiring all volunteers with unsupervised or regular contact with students be fingerprinted

Whereas the Nevada PTA supports volunteers in schools and feels they are a vital part of the school community

Whereas SB287 puts an undue financial burden on volunteers and creates inequity among socioeconomic groups.

Whereas in creating the law the Nevada Legislature failed to fund the mandate and did not set forth guidelines for school districts to follow to ensure uniformity throughout the State.

Resolved that Nevada PTA work with partners and legislators to eliminate the financial burden placed on volunteers for background checks and fingerprints.
