Private Higher Education Employment Background Checks

Background checks for private schools and universities depend largely on state and federal requirements. To protect the safety and welfare of students and staff, though, an optimum criminal record search and background screening program is essential.

Barada Associates has provided extensive employee screening services for multiple industries, including private schools and universities, since 1979. We were one of the first employment screening businesses in the country and have developed a reputation over the years as the premier provider of background checks and pre-employment background check services. For more information about our services, contact Barada Associates today for a free 15-minute consultation.

Dependable Background Checks for Private School Employment

Although public schools have typically long been required to background check prospective teachers and staff, the laws vary across each state in terms of private schools, academies and universities. The state of New York, for example, recently made it a requirement for these institutions to conduct pre-employment screenings.

We provide background checks for private school employees. Barada Associates will develop an individual plan for each school’s employment screening. First, we’ll ask lots of questions. We want to get to know your school, how many students and teachers there are and the type of background information that needs to be obtained for each candidate.

Attempting to background check every teaching candidate on your own is a timely process. When you hire Barada Associates, we take care of everything. We offer honest, up-front prices, quick turnaround times and quality work.

What a Background Checks Consists of

As a full-service, professional employment screening company, Barada Associates offers a wide range of background and pre-employment background screening services, including:

Academic Verification

Our academic verification services confirm your candidate’s credentials by verifying diplomas, teaching degrees and certifications.

Drug & Alcohol Testing

Because teachers work with children or young adults on a daily basis, it’s essential to test that candidates don’t have a drug or alcohol addiction. We partner with reputable national laboratories to process multiple types of tests.

Criminal Records Check

Knowing whether a teaching candidate or current employee has a criminal record is imperative. We run a rigorous criminal history check on each candidate.

Employment Verification

Our employment verification services provide job titles, dates of employment and past salaries of all previous employers.

Professional Skills & Cognitive Assessments

Professional skills and cognitive assessments can help school administrators identify whether candidates possess the temperament for management and certain job responsibilities.

Benefits of Background Checks for a Independent School Job

Very few jobs give people more power over the lives of kids and children than teachers and school officials. While overseeing their education, teachers spend more time with kids and young adults than their parents do in many cases.

It’s of the utmost importance that private schools do their due diligence when hiring staff. School administrators should employ people who are not only trustworthy but have completed the proper schooling and training required to teach children.

A thorough background screening that includes, most importantly, criminal background checks and academic verification ensures children are being left with reputable and reliable teachers.
