Criminal Background Check

All courses of study in the Teacher Education Program require students to apply their learning in K-12 school settings. We must ensure that all teacher candidates have a clear criminal background before working with children in schools.  Students who do not hold a clear renewable teaching, leadership or service certificate in Georgia must pass a criminal background check prior to engaging in any field experience or apprentice teaching.
