Who Takes Your Child to School?
Let's think about something for a moment. If there was a knock at your door, and a stranger was standing there, his car still running in the driveway, and he said, "Hi. I'm here to take your kid to school," would you let them go? You probably wouldn't. In fact, you might get extremely upset and wonder who in the world this person was and just what he wanted. Most parents are highly protective of their children. However, a lot of those parents do allow their children to be taken to school by a stranger – every morning when their child climbs on the school bus.
While the schools do their best to hire responsible and clean men and women to take your child to school, do you honestly believe they never make a mistake? In fact, there are schools that have even missed something and allowed teachers with criminal pasts to teach the children. While we would like to think the school wouldn’t make a mistake, sometimes as parents we have to take matters into our own hands and see exactly who is taking care of our children.
All you have to have in order to do so is the name of your child's bus driver. By visiting www.Federal-Records.org, you can enter his or her name into the text box. Within a few moments, you will have access to the types of records you need in order to make sure your child is safe on the bus. You will get reports of criminal records, including sex offender records and civil records, and even something as simple as a misdemeanor will show up on the report. Of course, if there are no records, there are probably no arrests or convictions on that particular person.
Sometimes when bus drivers take criminal background checks, they take them only for the state they will be driving in. Unfortunately, that means if they have ever committed a crime in another state, it might not show up. That doesn't mean they won't commit another crime, only that they have gotten away from the place where the knowledge of the crime they committed was. They could be in a fresh new town where no one suspects a thing about them. Luckily, as the diligent parent, you don't have to let them get away with it.
Finding out information is so much easier than it used to be. Simply type in the name and get the records. The truth is, you may not only save your child from a tragedy. You may save the entire bus full of children from a tragedy. No matter how safe you assume them to be, check out the people your children spend time with! Hindsight is 20/20, but you can start with perfect vision today.
