Lawmaker Looks to Change Background Checks for Teachers (Dec 28, 2010)

OKLAHOMA CITY - State Rep. Donnie Condit (D-McAlester) plans to introduce legislation he says would “bring more common sense” to a state requirement that schools request national criminal background checks on prospective employees.

Condit says he wants to see a one-time background check conducted instead of the annual background check. He says the $55 annual fee for the background check means some substitutes and part-time teachers make almost no money on their first day.

Senate Bill 2199 required a national criminal background check on any prospective school employee in Oklahoma.  The school district could then reimburse the required $50 payment pending the results of the backround check.
