School Board Stan Jester believes that nothing in state law requires him to submit to a background check conducted by DeKalb County Schools.
Now he says the school system refuses to give him his paycheck and has refused to create a county email account for him. That means his constituents can’t contact him about School Board business using the official county email account, and he isn’t included on some emails that go to the other board members.
Decaturish asked DeKalb County Schools about this, and a spokesperson said a detailed statement would be forthcoming.
Jester believes the school system’s actions are retaliation for his refusal to comply with a background check requirement.
“I think it all goes back to the fingerprinting,” Jester said.
