Florida law requires school district employees to undergo a criminal background check to clear them for employment. Likewise, the law requires noninstructional contractors and vendors to undergo a criminal background check for clearance to work at schools.

School Board Rule 6.104 governs the background screening of prospective District employees. It describes the procedure for screening and lists the offenses that will or may disqualify a person from employment by the District.

School Board Rule 7.142 governs the background screening of noninstructional contractors and vendors.
