Criminal Record Checks Required for School Employees

Once again, in anticipation of the upcoming fall school year the Rhode Island Department of Attorney General is offering criminal background checks for anyone who will have contact with children on the premises of public and private schools.  This criminal background check, known as a BCI check, is required for those who seek the following positions at public and private schools:

  • Teachers
  • School Employees
  • Volunteers
  • School Bus Monitors
  • Individuals who will have direct or unmonitored contact with students

If you seek one of these positions and you are looking to have records expunged from your BCI, contact Attorney Matthew Marin immediately and we can provide a free case evaluation.  During the case evaluation we will be able to determine what charges, if any, can be removed from your record and give you an estimate regarding when the charges can be removed and how much it will cost to have them removed.

We are available 24/7 by phone at 401-228-8271, email at marin.matthew@gmail.com, or you can complete the free case evaluation contact form on our website.
