Powered by JDP

JD Palatine, creator of Safe & Sound Education, has partnered with Region 4 Education Service Center to make comprehensive background check services available to school districts, charter schools, colleges and other state agencies who join the Region 4 cooperative. The partnership allows Region 4’s cooperative members to enter into Region 4 agreements with the assurance that all state required procurement requirements have been met.

Why use Safe & Sound Education, instead of, or, in addition to DPS?

  • DPS has only Texas information.
  • The Safe & Sound Education Search meets Texas requirements for volunteer screening and includes national databases across the country, including all states’ sex offender registries.
  • Texas law requires finger printing for all new hires, and Safe & Sound Education checks help cover gaps in finger printing results.
