Mandatory Virtus Training for all IC Parents




The Diocesan Safe Environment Policy has changed for the 2021-2022 school year. The Diocese of Jefferson City now requires ALL parents (MOM & DAD) (or guardians) to take the Safe Environment (VIRTUS) training and be cleared to volunteer. To be clear: this training is now required for attendance in our schools. (Students will not be able to attend school in August, 2021 until this is completed) As a stewardship diocese, we are asking our parents to make a commitment of their time, talent and treasure to the parish and the school. If a parent is to volunteer their time in the school, they are required to have completed the safe environment requirements. It is part of their commitment to the school.


* If you have already completed this training in the past, please log into your VIRTUS account to complete any additional information if needed. We will have access to your completion information to update your school account.

* Below are the instructions to complete the online training and documents that are required. The training can be completed in a couple of hours. Once you have completed the training, please submit the Training Certificate that is provided upon completion to the school office so we can update your school account.
