  • Agencies checking high school past?

    Just curious, I know you sign for things to be available to BI from previous jobs, etc. But what about if you got in trouble in high school? Can they pull that even if it's 10 years or so past? How detailed could a high school record be? I ask because I was accused by another student when I was a sophomore of stealing his hat. It was simply a practical joke, but he reported it to a teacher that I stole it so I was suspended a day. Nothing big but just curious if that would come up. Thanks.

    Your HS transcripts should contain the 1 day suspension, but your incident isn't serious enough to warrant making an issue of it. However, you should disclose it on your application and just explain what happened.

      I'm sure it will come up, especially if you have to poly. Are we going to turn you away for stealing a kid's hat (as a joke which was later given back) 5-10 years ago? No.
