More Schools Requiring Volunteer Background Checks

If you’ve been following our recent tweets, you’ll notice that we’ve been talking a lot about schools instituting regular background checks on all volunteers.

For many parents, it may come as a shock that there are schools that don’t background screen any person who has access to their child(ren).  After all, school is supposed to be a “safe” place for kids to go.  But there are many schools that deem such actions as “too costly” to undertake.

If you’re a mom or dad, take a moment and find out if your school conducts any sort of background checks on volunteers.  And if you find out the answer is “no”, ask yourself if you feel 100% secure in the knowledge that any person (i.e., a sexual offender, a person with a criminal history) can be in a position to work with your youngster.
