Diocesan Safe Environment
We encourage all parents to participate in an online session so they are able to volunteer in the classroom, chaperon field trips and assist at school events.
- All Diocese of Owensboro employees must take Safe Environment Training and have a background check every 5 years. Other diocesan policies for hiring of employees must also be followed.
- All adult volunteers in the Diocese of Owensboro who work with children and youth must take Safe Environment Training and have a background check every 5 years.
- All children registered in Catholic Schools or Parish Faith Formation programs must receive Safe Environment training each year, unless their parent/guardian have signed a formal opt-out form.
