Webinar on Background Check Requirements Available in CASA College LMS

Deedra Baker, Program Operations & Resources Director, hosted a required webinar on background checks on Thursday, July 28. The webinar covered:

  • The requirement for CASA programs to complete an internal audit for completed background checks in board, staff and volunteer files, and submit to Texas CASA by Aug. 31, 2016,
  • How programs can get their national criminal history re-check, and
  • A new requirement that programs will have beginning Sept. 1, 2016 to provide their courts with verification of training and screening on new volunteers and staff who supervise volunteers.

To access the archived webinar, please log into the CASA College LMS and search for “Background Check Requirements.” You will find the two handouts from the webinar under “Resources” on the left side of the screen.
