Background Clearance

FINGERPRINTING (for background/security clearance) -- Every student, faculty, or staff member who, in their role as student, employee, or volunteer, is in the presence of PreK-12 students and/or vulnerable adults, must be documented at Peabody as having current background clearance before they are eligible to participate in such activity. To achieve background clearance, electronic fingerprinting must be done at either Peabody on specified dates, or, on any weekday at the Metro Nashville Board of Education office.

Go to the Peabody Background Clearance Office website for details. There you will find the policy, forms, instructions, steps for completing the background clearance process, and FAQs.

Please consult the FAQs before contacting the Background Clearance Office.
