If you will be volunteering with students (for example tutoring, volunteer coach or as a field trip chaperone), the Pell City School System requires that you submit to a background check. If you have questions, please contact Pam Compton @ 884-4440 ext. 225. The base cost of the screening starts at $25.00 (may increase due to multiple counties/states you have lived over the years) and is conducted through an outside company.
