::Screening Form

Welcome to the Online Screening Form. The data will only be sent to the Safety Officer of your parish, school or other location. All information entered on this form is kept private and secure.

This form is to be completed for all applicants for any position (volunteer or compensated). This is not an employment application. Persons seeking employment will be required to provide additional information. This process is used to help the church provide a safe and secure environment for children, youth and adults who participate in our program and use our facilities.

Volunteer means any unpaid person engaged in or involved in a Diocesan activity, and who is entrusted with the care and supervision of children and/or persons engaged or involved in ministry who have regular individual contact with the elderly or disabled. When you submit this form, it will be sent to the appropriate person.

In connection with your application and for other employment purposes, the Diocese of Dallas may seek background information about you from a consumer reporting agency. This information will be in the form of consumer reports and/or investigative consumer reports.

These reports may be obtained at any time after the Diocese of Dallas receives authorization from you, including any time during the period of your employment if the Diocese of Dallas hires you.

Consumer reports include any written, oral or other communication of information by a consumer reporting agency bearing on your credit standing, character, general reputation and other characteristics that is expected to be used for employment purposes. Consumer reports may include criminal records, and driving records, among other resources.

Accutrak, or another consumer reporting agency, will obtain the reports for the Diocese of Dallas.

You have the right to request information from the Diocese of Dallas about the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report on you that is requested by the Diocese of Dallas. The request must be made in writing and within a reasonable period of time after you have received this disclosure.
