House Bill 49 – Posting Requirement This bill requires each chartered nonpublic school to publish on the school’s website:
1. The number of students enrolled in the school by the last day of October of the current school year. St. Peter School enrollment is 495 as of October 31.
2. The school’s policy regarding background checks for teaching and nonteaching employees and for volunteers who have direct contact with students.
Several weeks ago, we recommended that you satisfy the second part of this requirement using the following statement:
This school complies with The Decree on Child Protection which is promulgated by the Archbishop of Cincinnati.
After further guidance from the Catholic Conference of Ohio, we recommend adding this language to the original statement: Our fingerprinting policy includes manual fingerprinting for employees and electronic background checks for all employees and volunteers.
