The DCPS clearance process is for mentors who have already completed a CEO program mentor application, and have been notified by CEO staff of their selection as a mentor.
In order to be cleared to volunteer with DCPS, you will need to follow the steps outlined below. Unfortunately, we are unable to make exceptions to these requirements.
The Fingerprinting Office is located on the 10th floor at 1200 First Street, NE. Operating hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 5pm, and Fridays from 8am to 3pm.
You will receive a verification email 5-10 business days after being fingerprinted. This email will contain your DCPS volunteer clearance letter, which is valid for 2 years. Please submit this letter to CEO program staff as proof of clearance and keep a copy for your records. You are not permitted to volunteer without the volunteer clearance letter from DCPS. In cases where background checks require follow up, you will receive additional information by mail from the Office of Compliance.
