Prospect Park schools make progress on substitute teacher background checks

Comptroller’s office says district still needs to formalize those policies

The Prospect Park school district has taken some steps to ensure all substitute teachers complete a background check after a state audit conducted by acting Comptroller Kevin Walsh found the district failed to properly maintain evidence such checks had been conducted.

In a follow-up report issued by the comptroller’s office Wednesday, the school promised to confirm background checks with the Office of Student Protection and to maintain a list of approved substitute teachers that would be updated throughout the school year.

The comptroller’s office said the district had not formalized either of those policies.
