Today’s world is a far cry from the one our grandparents grew up in. There are events that have happened in our world that would never have been thought of in their time. The concept is essentially that things have changed drastically in the last 40 years, and that many of these changes have been for the worse. Today’s schools need to providalike. In order to provide this environment perspective and current employees of a school district may need to pass a background check. Schools typically perform the bare minimum, one-time criminal history checks and fingerprint the teachers and school employees as mandated by state law. Red flags in the employment history of new applicants often go undiscovered, and crimes committed by school staff during the term of their employment can easily go undetected.
