ATLANTA (AP) - The public safety chief in a metro Atlanta school system says one of the school board members still hasn’t undergone a national background check that’s required for employees.

Board member Stan Jester said he received a background check from Dunwoody and DeKalb County police. Jester has said that he believes undergoing the school system’s background check would be a conflict of interest, since he oversees the system as a board member.

WSB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1FSQSm2) that because of the dispute, Jester has not received a paycheck from the district and has not been issued an employee badge.

Dekalb County Schools Public Safety Chief Donald Smith tells WSB that he received a completed state background check, but has not received a national background check that meets the school district’s requirements.
