Background Checks

  • Texas Senate Bill 9 (SB 9) was passed to authorize and require background checks for those individuals who have access to students in a public school setting and to ensure that those who have certain kinds of serious criminal history be removed from a public school setting. SB 9 requires that virtually anyone who has access to students must undergo a criminal history background check, including all school district employees, substitutes, student teachers, volunteers, field trip chaperones and some contractors.
