Background Screening Teachers

Unfortunately, many state’s background check processes 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 vital reports that could reveal troubling details.

Solutions Tailored to the Education Industry

A concern for positions with higher education requirements like teaching is the nationwide diploma mill trend. A diploma mill is a fictitious educational institution 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's degrees, and other occupational certificates. For more information, click here.
