sep clearance required for parent volunteers 

Since safety is of utmost importance, we screen volunteers and adhere to the Diocese of Dallas' Safe Environment Program (SEP). All new volunteers are required to complete a Diocese screening form and attend the Family Faith Training Class. There are several SEP classes available (click here for the calendar) if you plan to volunteer in your child's classroom or help on field trips. Returning SEP cleared volunteers are required to update training each school year. All SEP training/renewals should be complete by Sept. 15, 2018.
