Student safety is our number one priority at the McCall Outdoor Science School. The University of Idaho recently updated the Administrators Procedural Manual (APM) to include a Protecting Minors section (http://www.uidaho.edu/apm/05/12). The golden rule is that anyone in direct contact with a minor has to be background checked; this includes all MOSS staff, faculty and graduate students and all teachers, chaperones, volunteers and adults related to a program. Your school is responsible for initiating the background check, for reviewing the results and for deciding who can participate in the program. Please contact Keith Goodenough in the Risk Management Office if you have any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org, 208-885-6177.
