1. Smith, Richard Kimball. The impact of ciminal background checks on the selection of school volunteers as reported by human resource professionals of selected Texas public school districts.

Degree: PhD, Educational Administration, 2005, Texas A&M University

The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of criminal background checks on the selection of school volunteers as reported by human resource professionals in selected Texas public school districts. Ninety Texas school districts were randomly selected for this study, and results were categorized by the size of the school district based on student population. Survey responses were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. A Chi-square analysis was performed to determine if there were significant differences (p ? 0.05) in responses to research questions based on size of the school district. Findings in the study included the following: 1. There was no difference in the school district approach to policy and procedure development based on the size of the school district as it pertained to criminal background checks of school volunteers. 2. There was no difference in response rate based on the size of the school district regarding type of offense, number of offenses, adjudication process, and type of criminal history data search. 3. There was a significant difference (p ? 0.05) in approach between largesized and small-sized school districts regarding the acceptable timeframe concerning recency of offense on a volunteer criminal history record. 4. There was no difference in response rate based on the size of the school district regarding the effectiveness of criminal background check procedures in eliminating potential volunteers who might pose a threat or risk to teachers, staff, and students. The following are recommendations for further study: 1. A similar study could assess the responses from teachers, staff, and/or students to determine if these different education categories possess different perceptions regarding the impact of criminal background checks on school volunteers. 2. A further study could analyze the specific written policies of school districts and determine the decision criteria for each level of offense. 3. This study focused on school volunteers. A research study could specifically focus on the impact of criminal background checks on parent volunteers, or conversely be more general, focusing on the impact of criminal background checks on professional or auxiliary employees. Advisors/Committee Members: Stark, Stephen L. (advisor), Larke, Alvin (committee member), Stenning, Walter F. (committee member), Whetten, Clifford L. (committee member).

2. Stewart, James Michael. From the big house to the school house: admittance of convicted felons into colleges and universities.

Degree: 2017, University of Georgia

This study focused on the processes and procedures through which colleges and universities review applications for admission from individuals with felony charges or convictions. Research into educational opportunities for individuals with felony convictions, both during incarceration and post-incarceration, supports programs and policies which can assist the individual obtain an education and/or skills. This opportunity for education and skill development can effectively reduce the opportunity for recidivism to the correctional system. Using a quantitative methodology, along with ten open-ended questions, this exploratory research indicated trends and similarities in the processes and procedures used by the survey participants. With funding an issue for any state-affiliated institution, public colleges and universities have an opportunity to partner, in various aspects and manners, with state correctional facilities, to the benefit of the student inmate, the institutions, and society as a whole.

3. Owen, Gregory T. Analysis of Background Check Policy in Higher Education.

Degree: PhD, Educational Policy Studies, 2012, Georgia State University

In the higher education environment today, lack of agreement about background checks between campus community members, fueled by unresolved tensions between security and privacy, has led many universities to adopt a patchwork of fragmented background check policies. Many of these policies have been created and accepted without careful consideration of the wide array of risks and complexities involved with background checks. This policy analysis examined the experiences and history behind Georgia Institute of Technology’s adoption of background check policy. This was achieved through interviewing relevant constituents and analyzing of all available/related official policy documents associated with Georgia Tech’s Pre-employment Background Check Policy and Program. This dissertation presents a chronological account of the events and influences associated with Georgia Tech’s adoption and revision of background check policy. Results of this study offer valuable insights and recommendations for further study in order to assist higher education policy makers and HR professionals at other universities in making more informed decisions regarding the challenges involved with background check, and similar, policy. Some of these insights include an awareness of societal tensions that exist between privacy and security policy; the importance of understanding how national, local, and organizational level triggering events have shaped and contributed to higher education background check policy that is based on a general concern for security; and my recommendation for further study into background check policy as it will relate to the higher matriculation process. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Philo Hutcheson, Dr. Jennifer Esposito, Dr. Terry Blum, Dr. Benjamin Baez.
