Volunteering & Safe Environment 

All Saints Catholic School abides by the Dallas Diocesan Safe Environment policy. All adults working, volunteering or interacting with children in the school or attending field trips must be safe environment cleared through All Saints Catholic Church Safe Environment program and wear their red security badge in the building or when working with students. Safe environment clearance must be renewed on a yearly basis.

Checklist to become a Safe Environment Cleared Adult:

  • Must be 18 years of age
  • Must be a Member of the Parish for at least 6 months (does not apply to “staff”)
  • Must complete, sign and submit the Safe Environment Screening Form
  • Must review and accept the provisions of the Safe Environment Program, the Policy on Sexual Misconduct and the Social Media Policy as indicated by a signed Acknowledgment Form.
  • Must complete a personal interview with the Ministry Head for whom you wish to volunteer (or a designee).
  • Must receive positive responses to Reference Checks
  • Must receive a “clear” report from a Criminal Background Check. (Background Checks are reviewed every two years.)
  • Must participate in a designated initial Safe Environment training and then in annual updates including a variety of related topics.

To become a Safe Environment cleared adult:

  1. Complete the Safe Environment Screening Forms and the “acknowledgement form” available through the Parish website (www.allsaintsdallas.org under Safe Environment and then downloads) or the Safe Environment Booklet at the School.
  2. Watch the initial training for Safe Environment called “Family of Faith”.  You may check it out from the school office or parish library on DVD.  If you prefer a live class click here and select the link under the ATTEND CLASS section. 
  3. A personal Safe Environment interview also is required.  You may schedule one through the school office.
  4. A digital photo (head and shoulders in jpeg format preferred) is required for the Safe Environment badge.

Once you have been cleared you will need to renew your training yearly through an online training class or watch a safe environment video and fill out the form.  Always wear your badge when you are volunteering at the school.
