Notice to Bidders Regarding AB1610 Education Code section 45125.1 requires all entities having certain contracts with school districts to certify that employees of contractors who may have contact with pupils have not been convicted of serious or violent felonies as defined by statute. Prior to certification, contractors must have their employees fingerprinted and receive clearance from the California Department of Justice (DOJ). In order to obtain clearance, the contractor must first be awarded a contract by the school district and the district must certify this fact to the DOJ.
The fingerprinting and certification requirements do not apply if the school district determines that, under the totality of circumstances, employees of contractors will have only limited contact -or no contact - with pupils.
