Contracting with a District Board of Education (PCS)

In accordance with N.J.A.C. 6A:19-2.4(a)5, approved Private Career Schools (PCS) that contract with a school district to offer a program or portion of a program on an individual or group basis must conduct criminal background checks on all employees who have regular contact with students pursuant to N.J.S.A. 18A:6-7.1. New procedures have been implemented for employees of PCSs that have contracted with school districts. The procedures streamline the criminal background check process and ensure that PCS are kept up to date regarding any criminal activity of employees. The complete procedures are outlined in the memo here.
