Who’s in our schools?

School is a place where you expect your kids to be safe.

It has been a little more than a decade since Kansas law forced public schools to background check teachers but they are still not required for support staff, like custodians and librarians. While some schools exceed state requirements, others don’t. Does that put our kids at risk?

So what are the rules? How much would a change in policy cost? Have any school employees “slipped through the cracks”? What do parents and administrators think of the current policies?

Join us Thursday night as we get answers to these questions and more.
