Background Checks

Background Checks

Background checks are required for many of our volunteers. You will need to first determine what type of Background Check is required for your role.

Instant Checks

Mason Band Volunteers in Photo Corps, Pit Crew, Uniform Crew, and Guard are required to have Instant Background Checks at a minimum. (In some cases, volunteers in these areas may need an Extended Check - see below.)

Instant Checks are good are good for 5 years and cost $16. Please fill out this form: Request for instant Background check.

The cost is $16 through EZpay or cash/check can be sent in to central office (address below). Form will not be processed until payment is received. Ezpay will expedite the entire process. 

Extended Checks

Extended Checks are required for our Mason Band Boosters Board of Directors and Band Aids. Additionally, Chaperones who travel and serve on overnight trips also are required to have Extended Background Checks. (Chaperones who plan to volunteer only for rehearsal shifts on school grounds may be ok with an Instant check.) 

In addition, anyone who might work with students outside of director supervision must have an extended background check. This could include some members of Uniform Crew, Pt Crew, and Guard Volunteers.

Extneded background checks are good for 5 years and cost $50. Click here to schedule an appointment. The top of the page includes details on what to bring and where to go. If none of the timeframes work for you, please email Sarah Jo at with a few days and time frames that work for you and she will get you scheduled.

If you are not sure if you need an extended background check for your position, or do not know if a previous extended background check has expired, please reach out to Melissa at
