American International School is committed to the safety and protection of children. All faculty and staff are expected to comply with our child safeguarding expectations.
AIS is committed to ensuring that all individuals who are employed by AIS and whose duties include direct contact with children are required to undergo background screening prior to direct contact with children. To ensure all current and potential employees are safe to work with children, AIS follows the following procedures:
● Advertisements for vacancies clearly state that safeguarding policies and procedures are enforced at AIS and that background screenings are required as part of the recruitment process.
● Criminal background checks for newly hired employees that cover, at a minimum, the last five years of employment.
● A minimum of two professional references shall be required, at least one of which will be a verbal reference check.
● All AIS employees must annually review, sign, and adhere to the AIS Adult and Student Boundaries: Code of Conduct.
