Background Check for Teachers

HireSafe offers an education background check because we understand that the safety and protection of students is an absolute  requirement within the education industry.

Unfortunately many state’s background check process for educators fall short of giving school districts a full picture of a new academic teacher’s criminal background check. While the checks warn the state and districts of any felony convictions that would eliminate a teacher from an education certification, many currently don’t share information on misdemeanor convictions and other important reports that could reveal troubling information.

The HireSafe comprehensive education employment background check program will reveal all criminal convictions associated with an applicant teacher, academic, administrator or janitor. Providing a safe and secure workplace is the responsibility of every employer.

Solutions Tailored to the Education Industry

Risk mitigation begins with identifying potential problems before they occur. HireSafe's comprehensive education background checking solutions work fast to help you rule out those who might not suit your academic values while identifying potential employees who will best fit your requirements. The proximity of working with the public requires that a Sex Offender and criminal records search be conducted at a minimum.

A recent concern in hiring is the nationwide trend in the use of diploma mills. A diploma mill is a fictitious educational institution. It is a company set up to appear as an educational institution. For a nominal fee, an individual can purchase an educational degree or certificate and receive it within two weeks. We have seen certified nursing degrees, bachelor degrees, master degrees and other occupational certificates. For more information click here.
