Tri-Boro Board Members in Compliance With Background Check Law

Names of those who are not expected to be released this week.

Don't expect the names of tri-boro board of education members to be on the list of those not in compliance with a state-mandated background check expected to be released by the Department of Education this week. Officials in all three school districts have confirmed that local board members completed their background check requirements long before the Dec. 31 deadline.

According to an article in the Asbury Park Press, over 350 school board members statewide are in violation of the law and could lose their jobs or face jail time.

The law was passed last year and disqualifies board members convicted of certain crimes from serving. New teachers are also asked to comply with a background check and can be disqualified from positions based on convictions of certain crimes.

"We were very lucky that everyone was in compliance long before this," Business Administrator Debra Naley-Minenna said.

Business Administrator Jim Minkewicz and Business Administrator George Hagl also confirmed that board members on each respective board were in compliance long before Dec. 31.
