District Investigates Teacher Aide’s Possible Criminal Record

Jason Morris

Here is a story from employeescreenIQ’s own backyard.  Though these allegations have yet to be confirmed, this story brings into question how efficient the school district’s background screening process really is.  If this person failed the background check, as this article states, how was she still placed in a position at the school?  The only reason I can think of is that the district may have run the background check after the employee had already started work making their continued employment contingent upon the results of the background check.  Running the background check after the person starts working for a company is certainly something employeescreenIQ would not suggest (especially when the position entails working with children) but, on the flip side, we do realize that sometimes a company’s immediate staffing needs outweigh any possible pitfalls.  Of course, this is just speculation at this point.  It will be interesting to see how this turns out.
