A homeschool leader on the Homeschool-Life Leaders Forum asked,
Could you share what companies you use to do background checks for your organization?
Here are some of the companies that homeschool groups use for doing background checks on employees and volunteers:
We have used ClearStar.net for several years. They charge $7.95 for a basic criminal background check. Our members can fill in their own information, so we don’t have to deal with paperwork and shredding personal information.
We use Federal Background Services. very reasonable and efficient
My co-op uses SecureSearchPro.com. They charge us about $14/check. They customized our background search to fit our specific needs. They bill us on a monthly basis. I really like them, they are easy to use, members fill out an online form so I never have to gather their personal information.
Many states now require background checks on any individuals working with children. You church host may require background checks as well. So the companies mentioned above may be very helpful to you in running your homeschool programs.
