BILL NUMBER:S4211

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the education law, in relation to allowing certain schools to
contract with BOCES for criminal background checks

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
This bill would allow non-public
schools to enter into contracts with BOCES schools for the
processing of fingerprints in relation to criminal background checks.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends the education law to
allow non-public schools to enter into contracts with BOCES schools
for the processing of fingerprints in relation to criminal background
checks.

JUSTIFICATION:
Current law allows non-public schools to contract
with BOCES to process pupil personnel records but not to process
background checks for teachers. Allowing these schools to contract
with BOCES to process fingerprints and criminal background checks
would ensure the safety of students. The state must make that all
teachers have been properly screened. Non-public schools will pay the
costs.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
