House adds fingerprints to Senate's K-12 background check bill
from The Topeka Capital-Journal
A House committee amended a bill approved by the Senate requiring more than 60,000 public school district employees in direct contact with students to undergo fingerprint and criminal background checks every five years. The Senate prefers educators and support staff pay the $50 fee, while the House Education Committee voted to give local school boards the option of picking up the tab.
