Fulton County Schools Coach Registration

  • All coaches who wish to provide non-paid services, duties and responsibilities pertaining to the care, safety and well-being of the Fulton County School System students must have a national and state background check conducted prior to their volunteer service to the system. According to Georgia law, O.C.G.A 35-3-34.2, volunteers who may have unsupervised access to children may submit to a fingerprint screening, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and a state, Georgia screening of their criminal history. The criminal history check is to "determine suitability (and fitness) of a potential child care provider," who may be responsible for the safety and well-being of children. (National Child Protection Act section 3(a) (1)) Disqualifying criminal history information for volunteer services may include, but is not limited to, any convictions of child abuse crimes, exploitation, physical or mental abuse, negligent treatment or maltreatment of a child by any person.


    NOTE: Coach badges are good for a period of 2 years from the date of issuance. If you already have a badge, please make sure it has expired before you apply for a new one!
