Illinois DI Background Check Policy

Illinois DI Background Check Policy

Illinois Destination Imagination is announcing an important new policy that will impact all Team Managers and Assistant Team Managers for the 2019-2020 DI season.

In order to provide the highest level of after school activities for our participants, Illinois DI requires all team managers on record to have background checks. Our procedure is based on current best practices. Current background checks need to be completed to be eligible to compete at Regional and State Tournaments.

As required by Destination Imagination’s Rules of the Road, III.D.7 (page 8), all adults (18 years of age and older) serving as a Team Manager must submit to an approved background check.  This change, part of DI’s Youth Protection Policy, will help ensure that our program continues to be a safe and positive experience for all of our student participants.

Many of our volunteers already submit to an approved background check through an employer, the school district that sponsors their DI program, or another organization.  Most of these background checks will satisfy this new requirement.

For those who have never had a background check, Illinois DI is partnering with Sterling Volunteers to offer an approved check for $28 that is completed online.  Each volunteer will be responsible for the cost of their Sterling Volunteers background check.

Background checks are due Wednesday January 15th.
