The Western Québec School Board would like to inform the public of the following:

Security Background Check

Gatineau, August 26, 2014 - Parents/Legal Guardians,

The Western Québec School Board is pleased to inform you of the revised procedures and guidelines regarding the Security Background Check (SBC) for current and new employees, volunteers, and service contracts working in our schools and centres. The procedures were updated to clearly outline the process of the SBC, and more importantly, ensure that all individuals in the presence of students and staff members have undergone a SBC.

Consequently, future employees, volunteers, and contract workers will be required to complete a “Declaration Concerning a Judicial Record”; no one will be permitted, in any circumstances, to begin work/volunteer in schools and centres before receiving authorization from the Human Resources Department.

Information regarding the “Declaration Concerning a Judicial Record” is also available at your local school /centre.

Our responsibility is to ensure the safety and security of all students and staff members of the Western Québec School Board.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Paul Lamoureux
Director General
