  2. Choose "Cowan Elementary" from the list.
  3. Fill in your email.
  4. Choose "I Authorize".
  5. Click Submit.
  6. If your email is recognized then you are done. If your email is new or different you will be prompted to a new screen and asked to fill in your information.

Please Note:

  1. You must complete this form using your individual email - multiple people can not use the same email address.
  2. You must use the same email every year - using a new or different adderss will prompt the system to do a new check.

  4. Background checks are good for 3 years. HOWEVER, you must return to this site EVERY year and re-enter your email address.
