The volunteer swim coach at Hopewell High School in Huntersville accused of having a sexual relationship with a student didn't just walk into the school and offered to coach. According to CMS, anyone who wants to volunteer has to complete an online screening process.
CMS tells us they conduct local and/or national criminal background checks on all volunteer applicants. CMS Police Department receive the results and notify school and applicants about the results.
A CMS police officer will call anyone whose background check comes back with questionable results.
CMS tells WBTV whether a volunteer is supervised or not is based on the background check. They say it's a case by case basis.
There are currently more than 80,000 registered volunteers in CMS, and the majority of volunteers are parents who help out in their children's school.
WBTV checked with other school districts. Schools in Gaston and Union Counties also require potential volunteers fill out applications and undergo criminal background checks
In May 2012, Bart Shartzer - then a volunteer coach at Piedmont High School in Union County - was arrested for having sex with a student who was 17 years old at the time.
Union County Public Schools' Board of Education has a policy that rejects applicants with certain crimes.
