Data on convictions of certain crimes; public school contract employees. Requires school boards to obtain certification, from a contractor or employee of a contractor, that all employees who will have direct unsupervised contact with students (i) have not been convicted of a felony or any offense involving the sexual molestation or physical or sexual abuse or rape of a child; and (ii) have not been convicted of a misdemeanor involving actual or threatened harm to any person or property, or of any offense listed in subsection G of 16.1-260, prior to awarding a contract for services requiring direct unsupervised contact with students. The bill also provides that the requirement be waived in emergency situations where it is reasonably anticipated that the contractor or his employees will have no direct contact with students.
