Our schools must remain compliance with this law through related policy and operating procedures. Annually in your Basic Information Report, schools advise MNSAA that they follow this statute. When a school is visited by an onsite team, compliance is checked for each employee. If original copies are not maintained in the school, the team will need evidence from the school’s hiring authority that they have been completed.
Now is a good time to review your files to ensure all employees have had a qualifying criminal background check. MNSAA does not define how frequently schools need to repeat this procedure, but we do encourage schools to develop policies and practices that ensure this is occurring regularly.
*As defined by MN Statute 123B.03 – Background Check
