CRIMINAL RECORD CHECK OF CONTRACTED PERSONNEL Policy Code: 7145
If the district contracts with an outside person or entity to perform a job on a school campus or at a school-sponsored program, the contract must require the provider, and sub-contractors, to conduct annual checks of contract personnel on the State Sex Offender and Public Protection Registry, the State Sexually Violent Predator Registry, and the National Sex Offender Registry. Such contracts also must require providers and sub-contractors to conduct a comprehensive criminal history check on contract personnel. The contract with the outside person or entity shall provide that no individual who is on the State Sex Offender and Public Protection Registry, the State Sexually Violent Predator Registry, or the National Sex Offender Registry, or who has any conviction or pending criminal matter that reflects a potential threat to students, school employees, or school property, may be used to deliver goods or services on school system property under the contract. Individuals who are carrying out duties that are customarily performed by school personnel, such as custodians, bus drivers or substitute teachers shall receive criminal history checks before starting work as required by Board policy 7140.
