Does anyone know what kind of screening teachers go through to get hired?

Background checks? periodical drug tests?

Jackson high is all messed up back in the day there was a coach who had sex with the teenage girls last year there was a teacher who tried to bribe a girl into having sex with him so she could pass and this year theres a teacher who is getting arrested for prostitution and distibuting meth ! Wow im glad im outta there.

  • It depends on where you live. I had to have a Criminal Background check, a child abuse clearance and a FBI background check. I work for a private school, so we are subject to random drug test. I do not know about public schools in our area on that one.

  • I work for a public school and we have to pass a extensive background check.

  • I would guess they would do background checks, child abuse abuse checks, and a drug test. I know just to volunteer at my kids preschool the last 2 years they have done full background and child abuse checks on me, plus proof of auto insurance because I drove for all the field trips because we have a 15 passenger van!
