School Staff Background Checks & Screenings

We conduct screening services by the book.

Few professionals hold more sway than educators over the lives of vulnerable children and young people. Teachers and other school employees have responsibility for supervising students for multiple hours each school day — often with no other adults present for long periods. Employers that hire educators take safety seriously and strive to employ trustworthy individuals with the proper training and certifications.

However, validating credentials represents just one step in a comprehensive process for hiring educators. Only a thorough criminal background check for teachers can provide the detailed information that educational hiring managers need to make sound decisions about candidates. State and national laws also often mandate teacher background checks. The goal is to provide a safer learning environment and ensure employees can perform the necessary job requirements.
