2. Finger Printing/Background Checks – Board Role
A. Department of Education – The Credentialing of Education Personnel
B. Maine DOE Fingerprinting Process
C. Policy BBA: School Board Powers and Responsibilities
Ms. Madore said this item was added to the agenda because board member McCormick had questions regarding credentialing of education personnel. Ms. Madore explained that when the ASD hires somebody they have to have a criminal history records check per regulations. This requirement comes from the DOE and not the ASD. Once a criminal history records check is done and the DOE has concerns, they can choose not to issue a CHRC. The DOE does not divulge to the ASD their reasons for not issuing a CHRC. Every school employee must renew their CHRC certificate every five years.
The meeting adjourned at 7:31 p.m.
