LAPS says it conducts proper background checks

By The Staff

Los Alamos Public School Superintendent Kurt Steinhaus issued a statement about the background checks for the district’s employees just hours after the state ordered an immediate check for districts’ compliance to state standards.
In the statement released Wednesday, Steinhaus let the community know LAPS conducts background searches on each of its new applicants and makes those wishing to work for the district sign a statement authorizing such a check.
“When a person is hired by LAPS, the standard intake process includes submitting fingerprints through the criminal background check system called 3M Cogent,” Steinhaus said in the release.
Tuesday, Gov. Susana Martinez ordered compliance investigators with the state’s Public Education Department to conduct immediate reviews of background check policies for each of the state’s 89 public school districts.
Martinez’s order came on the heels of the discovery that Albuquerque Public Schools’ instruction and technology supervisor, Jason Martinez, had been brought up on child sex abuse and domestic violence charges in the state of Colorado, according to the Associated Press.
The governor and the accused APS official are not related.
