After hue and cry over safety in schools, several schools across India have made it mandatory to background screen their school staffs before they hire them. Most school employees’ work closely with students and schools want to hire responsible people to work with those children.
Schools typically perform bare minimum, one-time background verification on teachers and other school staff which is not quite sufficient. School authorities’ needs to take several steps to better protect their students. Apart from credit history and employment history, most of the background checks used by schools primarily focus on criminal history as well.
Majority of the school staff come from other States. What if they commit crimes in one State and go to another? It is highly important to conduct background checks on school employees who have contact with children including:
- other school employees
Even though the instances of abuse involving school employees are relatively few, they are magnets for public attention. Schools must carefully investigate the individuals they hire, as well as background check the volunteers that they allow on their campuses.
