  • Cabell County Schools utilizes a completely online process to initiate a background check using Secure Volunteer. After the volunteer training component has been reviewed and a successful quiz completion is logged, you will need to visit the school with your driver’s license to scan, complete the volunteer application, and follow principal/designee protocols for required training. An email containing a link to the background check will be sent to the applicant.
