I volunteered in my child's school for 8 years. 2 of those years I was a full time volunteer and PTA secretary. I was at middle school everyday all day doing various activities and also spent many late hours at home calling to get other parents to do the same. If New Hanover county starts this it will be even harder to get help from parents on big projects. NONE of the parents were ever alone with the students during any event I can remember. I tutored many children one on one and that always took place in the library with others around. The only situation that i could think of for this is when one is handling cash money. One year i headed up a sale and was responsible for the money. I had over $3000.00 cash in my purse at a PTA meeting waiting to hand it over to the sales company. Granted I was well known at the school and trusted to do this but you never know. A pedophile probably will not take the risk of trying anything at a school. Normally they take months and months to groom their victims. Besides that a background check only shows up for people that have been CAUGHT. Perhaps regular volunteers that have no kids at the school should be checked.
