Safe Visitor Procedure

Safe Visitor Process and FAQs

A SafeVisitor background check is required for anyone who visits Hamilton Southeastern District schools. The process also includes our anti-bullying training that is required by state law. Once your background check is completed and cleared, you are allowed to visit or volunteer at our schools for three years. You will also receive a “SafeVisitor Badge” via email from that can be used to expedite the sign-in process at all HSE Schools.
