News and Notes

Notice: The following is the MCOA policy on Background Checks and Badges for Sports Officials
Recently, the Florida Legislature added a requirement that non instructional contractor employees of Florida schools be issued a state badge to be displayed when on school property.  Non instructional contractor employees includes sports officials. As applied to sports officials, displaying the badge means having it available for display when officiating. The badge requirement is in addition to the requirement for a background check.  The Brevard School Board requires sports official to have a current background check before officiating. Current means a background check within the past 5 years.

Each sports official is individually responsible for complying with the background check and badging requirement.  To obtain a background check or badge, the official applies in person at the school district office in Viera. The cost for the background check is about $78.50. The cost for the state badge is $10.00.  The MCOA strongly encourages all officials to comply with these requirements.


The MCOA will be using Arbiter for Scheduling. For HELP in learning how to use Arbiter CLICK HERE:
