Background Checks

Tennessee Code Annotated (TCA 49-5-5610) requires all students entering state approved educator preparation programs to submit the result of a criminal background check to the institution. In compliance with this requirement, Shelby County Schools (SCS) requires criminal background checks for Rhodes College students who are placed in their schools for clinical experiences and internships with P – 12 students. The results will be sent to a Rhodes College representative. For more information, contact the Teacher Licensure Coordinator, Dr. Joseph Kelly (
