Virtus & DSE Forms

Volunteer Requirements

To all our wonderful parent volunteers: Thank you so much for your invaluable service.  Without you we would not be able to complete our mission effectively.  Our volunteers are extremely important to us and your contribution is genuinely appreciated.

As you know, the Diocese of Richmond has made a commitment to the safety of all youth.  Schools are required to keep records on file for all staff members and volunteers that document their fulfillment of the Diocesan Safe Environment (DSE) Regulations and VIRTUS training.

Any parent who volunteers at CHS, who has not completed this documentation in any other institution in the Diocese of Richmond (i.e., church or Diocesan feeder school), and who volunteers insituations that include children, must have the four items listed below on file in the Business Office ( links to forms at right):
  • A completed Volunteer ScreeningOne Application
  • A signed form testifying to the receipt of the Diocesan Safe Environment (DSE) Regulations
  • A copy of your VIRTUS training certificate
Additionally, if you volunteer to assist in driving groups of Catholic High School students to and from school events, you will need to complete a Volunteer Driver Information sheet.

If you have completed the screening process at another Diocesan location, you only need to fill out and sign the section of the Volunteer Select application indicating where you completed your previous paperwork.  You also need to go online to virtusonline.org, log in, go to My Account,  Add a location, and ADD Bishop Sullivan CHS.  You can then print a copy of your certificate (under My Training) and bring it to the Business Office.
Volunteer screening must be repeated every four years.   Child Protective Services checks my only be completed for persons 16 and older (16 and 17 year olds need parental permission for this check).  All background (CPS and Volunteer Select) checks as well as VIRTUS training must be completed for persons 18 and older.

Please call Rosa McElroy in the Business Office (467-2881) or email her if you have any questions or if you would like to pick up a Volunteer Screening Packet.  Thank you for all of your time and talent given in support of the Catholic High School family.
