Loxahatchee, Fla. (PRWEB) July 31, 2009
IntegraScan announced today the launch of a new criminal background check initiative designed to help America’s school system ensure the safety of students. This program has been launched in several Florida counties, and the company is currently seeking other school systems to enroll within the program.
This innovative initiative is a spin-off of the IntegraScan Safe Kids Program and is aimed at providing $ 3.5 million in free background checks to schools.
R. Edward Vernon, President of IntegraScan says “We hope to better facilitate background checks of teachers and volunteers while saving the tax payers millions.” He added “We still have plenty of funding available and encourage any school system in need to contact us to take part in this pilot program.”
Currently, the much-lauded Safe Kids Program authored by IntegraScan is in its second month of operation and has already awarded an immense number of free background checks.
IntegraScan understands the huge need for greater scrutiny of all those entrusted with the safety of America’s youth, including those within the school systems. Recent findings on American campuses have included teachers and caretakers with charges of stalking, aggravated assault and even drug trafficking working directly with students. Other criminal acts on campuses include the rape and murder of students, as well as harassment, physical and verbal abuse and more.
In an effort to remove this heinous threat from the lives of students and ensure they are provided with the safest learning environment possible, IntegraScan urges schools to take part in this initiative and take advantage of the free background check services provided.
IntegraScan is a leading provider of background check and criminal records services in the US. Their exceptional Safe Kids Program and their new initiative designed for the school system are geared to prevent harm through a proactive stance.
