Tuscaloosa is introducing a new policy for its schools.
The Tuscaloosa City Board of Education will on whether school guests and volunteers should undergo a sex offender registry check.
Some may even be subject to a full criminal background check before they can work with students.
Assistant superintendent says it is up for debate because they want to be consistent with how many people visit their schools. He also says the goal is to welcome visitors while keeping children safe.
The board will vote on Tuesday night at 6 p.m.
