Background Check Requirements for School Employees, Contractors, and Volunteers

Background Check Requirements for School Employees, Contractors, and Volunteers
Background check requirements for school employees, contractors and volunteers

The recent flurry of child abuse prevention legislation, extensively amending the Child Protective Services Law (CPSL) and indirectly amending School Code requirements, include significant changes to the background check requirements for new and current employees, contractors with direct contact with children, and volunteers. 

The majority of employees and volunteers updated their clearances as required in 2015.  However, anyone who was approved as an employee or volunteer in the year 2011 is due to update clearances in 2016.  If you are unsure if this applies to you, please call the school district to verify.
