The enhanced system provides several benefits:
· Results are returned electronically through a secure web account, decreasing turnaround time.
· Applicants and authorized agencies will be able to track the status of background checks.
· Results will be available in a PDF format for up to 90 days and may be viewed, printed or saved according to district policy.
· Districts and charter schools will be able to sort and search for results.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol is providing training for authorized district personnel. Districts and charter schools will be required to designate a Lead Agency Security Officer to monitor use of the web account and supporting equipment, to ensure that screening procedures are followed, and to inform the Highway Patrol of any security incidents.
