Archdiocese of Portland — Volunteer Background Check Form
To volunteer in any capacity at St. Clare school, every volunteer must have completed the Archdiocesan background check process.  Background check processing costs $15 per application. Please email Gwen Vroman at gvroman@stclarepdx.org to request the background check form as it is an online process.  

Called to Protect Video Training

The Archdiocese of Portland requires all St. Clare clergy, employees, and volunteers to attend a video showing of its “Called to Protect for Parents and Families and Ministries" training courses. You will receive a certificate of participation, which you will need to submit a copy of, to the St. Clare School front office. Check the Archdiocesan web site, www.archdpdx.org, for the "Called to Protect Training Schedule" which lists all trainings around the Portland area. 

ARMATUS ONLINE UPDATES

Each year the Archdiocese of Portland requires all clergy, employees and volunteers to complete a Called to Protect training update.  These trainings are completed online through the Armatus system.  To log in to Armatus go to: http://armatus2.praesidiuminc.com/armatusUser/login.  Your user name is the first letter of your first name followed by your full last name, all lower case. For example John Smith would be jsmith. Your password is the four digits of your birthday, month and day, followed by the letters "or" for Oregon.  For example, someone born on April 15 would be 0415or. Once logged in you can click on the links for the appropriate training courses.  All courses are listed as "pending" if they haven't been completed, but that does not mean they need to be completed.  Only the current year's update needs to be completed.  For the 2016-17 school year the update is "Social Media Safety".
