It's something more than one school system in this area has had to confront recently: employees accused of drug and other offenses.
Now Lynchburg is now ready to take a closer look at who it's hiring to work in the city's schools.
Starting next fall, the city is expected to start putting applicants through more thorough criminal background checks.

If the Lynchburg school board okays it later this month, all prospective employees.. from teachers to school bus drivers.. will soon undergo extensive criminal background and sex offender history checks BEFORE they're offered a job.
Until now, the process has consisted of just a few questions on the written application and a local criminal check.
The new plan will be much more thorough.

((The one thing the background checks don't cover is employees already working in the school system.
