Contracted Personnel Background Check Guidelines

  • The approved Contractor must ensure (prior to the onset of the contract) that criminal history background checks are performed on all persons hired and assigned to perform services under the contract at a school or facility. Contractor shall not employ for the services of Fulton County Schools (FCS) any person who does not pass the criminal history background check as determined by FCS Department of Safety & Security. The Contractor shall provide to the school Principal, the names of all personnel assigned to perform services for FCS, prior to the start of services. Fingerprints/background checks and contractor badges are good for two (2) consecutive school years; at the end of the 2-year term, all personnel must be fingerprinted again.
