One of our coordinators has been advised by a school she is working with that parents coming onto the school grounds for Computers in Homes training will need to be police checked, especially families not known to the school, who may be participating from another school. This seemed a bit strange to us, so we checked with the Ministry, and guess what, we are not the first to encounter this concern. The Ministry has a very clear guideline about schools’ responsibilities for this matter. Worth taking a look at the guideline as this relates to other people coming onto school properties as well. But what is very clear is there is no requirement for police checks on parents or other visitors to the school (with the Board’s consent).
