New Tutors must complete the ATC registration form and the ACPS

Volunteer application following the ATC form The submission of the ACPS form triggers a security screening good for 12 months .

Please call ATC's Executive Director Gwen Mullen at 703-549-6670, ext. 119 if you need help completing the ATC or ACPS forms. After completing the ATC form click "submit" and then complete and submit the ACPS form.

When your background check is complete, Linda Rodriguez of ACPS will notify you by email. Please make an appointment to visit the Family and Community Engagement (FACE) office at the ACPS central office at 1340 Braddock Place, 7th floor, for her to verify your identification ( a driver's license or government-issued identification) and to get an identification badge. Office hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10 am to 6 pm.

Returning Tutors also need to complete the ATC registration form, but not the ACPS form. The background check formerly good for two years is now good for only one year. ACPS will notify tutors about one month prior to the expiration of their approval date and a request will be made to run a new background screening. If you want to continue to tutor, you must respond with written consent (email is fine); it is helpful to provide your badge number. If it has been over 11 months since your last approval and you haven't heard from ACPS, send an email with your name and badge number to Linda Rodriguez, as noted below.Once approved, your badge will be re-validated for another 12 months. You do not need to return to ACPS for identification verification.

New and Returning Tutors with any screening questions should call 703-619-8055 or contact Linda Rodriguez,lrodrigu@acps.k12.va.us or Krishna Leyva, krishna.leyva@acps.k12.va.us.
