In an effort to protect students, the Medford, MA school district has launched a new background check system in their schools. All visitors of any of the Medford schools will need to show ID at the school office. At that point, the office will run an instant background check on the person which will show any criminal history. The person’s name will also be run though the state sex offender database.
If a person who is at the office has a suspicious record, administrators are immediately notified and the person is asked to leave school property. Though the system was $10,000, something that many schools may not be able to afford, Medford schools feel as if it was a good investment. In addition to keeping their visitors on track when it comes to these instant background checks, all staff and volunteers are put through a more extensive background check like those you may find at third party companies.
One of these third party companies, backgroundchecks.com, offers several products that can offer such instant checks to help keep their schools safe. One of the instant products is called US Offender OneSEARCH.
