Education and Schools Background Checks

Background Checks

From location to location, education background check requirements for job applicants can vary depending on state law and school board regulations. However, due to the importance of preserving student and school faculty well-being, education employers should always consider school faculty background check services when looking to fill any position, regardless of compliance needs.

With an uptick in violence in schools across the country, school faculty background checks can help employers pinpoint risks by reviewing any past violent criminal offenses. Given the presence of minors in schools and university campuses, education background checks can also identify previous criminal records, including details for those placed on the National Sex Offender Registry.

Beyond safety-sensitive measures, Health Street can also help employers confirm resume-specific details, such as education history, experience, and certification requirements, to ensure applicants are qualified to direct and educate students.
