Saint Ignatius College Prep begins by thoroughly evaluating the backgrounds of our employees and regular volunteers, 包括:
Initial and annual national criminal background checks for all employees and regular volunteers
Fingerprint-based, criminal-history record checks with the Illinois State Police and the FBI for all new employees
Annual processing of all employees through the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services’ 国家中央登记处, a child abuse/neglect tracking system (CANTS), which includes all reports of suspected child abuse or neglect, as well as the outcome of the investigation of these reports
We require orientation and ongoing training for our workforce through 博洛尼亚, the National Catholic Retention Group's program that thoroughly addresses the issues of boundaries between adults and students. Additionally, all Jesuit employees are accredited by 常务委员会.
