Ky. school volunteers to pay for background checks


LOUISVILLE, Ky.(AP)- Volunteers at Kentucky schools will
likely have to pay $10 for a criminal background check if they want
to continue helping out in the coming school year.

The new fee goes into effect July 1. Administrative Office of
the Courts Director Laurie Dudgeon told The Courier-Journal
( http://cjky.it/JlIfX2 ) the new fee is the result of state budget
cuts by the Kentucky General Assembly.

Dudgeon said the state processed more than 217,000 criminal
records reports for schools statewide last year.

School officials say they likely have little choice but to pass
on the cost to prospective volunteers who are relied on for
everything from class aides to helping with school field trips.

NAACP Louisville branch president Raoul Cunningham says the fee
will hurt low-income families from becoming involved in their
child's school.
