Background check to visit (by BRAD 20,000 [IN]) Posted on: Feb 21, 2024 12:59 PM
Message:

This is new to me.

6 year old grandson is in a school play and invited us to come.

In order to enter the school building (not volunteering or working) we must pay $12.99 each and submit info for a background check.

When we arrive they will take our picture to match to our background check.

I've had plenty of background checks between Boy Scouts and teaching Sunday School, but this seems a bit excessive to sit on a folding chair in the gym for 30 minutes.

And people think our Rental Application is too intrusive!

Has anyone else run into this?

BRAD

My DIL works at a school and people must present photo ID to get in, which doesn't seem like a terrible rule. And she said half the parents show up without one and get mad when she won't let them in.

But a background check??? --173.28.xx.xxx

could they deny you access or is that the excuse for charging but not actually do the background check?short of supposed to b in jail or in the country illegally i dont see that they could deny access,if they could where do they draw the line.We used to get charged to watch my stepson wressle at school,they said there were expenses like buying a new mat,i was the only one to mention my taxes should be paying for that.They also didnt like me mentioning there were folks from our school and visiting teams who may not be able to afford it and that it was keeping families from watching there family members wressle --71.217.xx.xxx

Message:

I will also ask, is this a public school?

How could they possibly keep you from entering a public school?

Why would they keep family from watching the kids at a school event?

As Ken noted, taxes should pay for that.

Could you ask the school for a copy of their budget and balance sheets?

If you told them to shove it and went in and watched the kid wrestle, what would happen?

Would they call the police?

Would the police be able to do anything on public school property?

Could the school be sued?

What did you say to them?

I like the fact NE teaches his own kids and took them out of the school system. I think I would do the same if I had kids.

6 x 6, I took them out and essentially fired them because they’re no longer qualified to teach my children. And that goes for any public school in the country. --24.152.xxx.xx

That's crazy. Most of the schools her are set up where you turn left to go to the cafeteria and gym or turn right to go to the classrooms. You only need the background check if you are going right into the classrooms hallway (IE: to volunteer). I get that because you don't want just any pedaphile roming around the classroom halls. But why the cafeteria? Shoot, here they rent out the cafeteria and gym after school hours, do you have to do a background check for that? --209.205.xxx.xx

Thats excessive, not even in NY do they do that. I get it that a school has the right to control its' footprint to keep it safe but do they then have to give you a copy of the report, and are they seeing your credit score. Don't let anyone in w less than 700,lol. --172.59.xxx.xxx

I was told today it's a new state law. We were approved (phew!) and printed our bar coded name tags. Warned to arrive early for our mugshot because they expect many Grandparents in line.

Son20,000 and his wife also had to be screened to enter the building.

Most school shewters are students with no background checks.
