Safety Screenings & Procedures
The safety of our students is our highest priority. To protect our students and comply with the requirements of our school partners and some of our funders, volunteers who choose to engage with students must complete the following at least two weeks before an event:
- Provide a copy of a negative TB test which has been taken within the last calendar year
- Provide results from either DCPS or an FBI fingerprinting service
- Complete The Fishing School’s internal Hire Authority screening form
