TB and background checks

Two of the requirements to be a substitute teacher with Swing are a TB test and LiveScan background check. Once you have a conference call with a member of the Talent Team at Swing, they'll be able to explain this process and answer any questions you might have. You'll also receive an email after the conference call with instructions on these next steps. 

TB

We recommend completing the TB test requirement in one of two ways:

If you don’t have a current TB test and do not pass the risk assessment, the next step would be to get a skin test. You can do this with the same clinic/provider that administers the risk assessment. (If you get your skin test at WellnessMart, the results will automatically be sent to Swing. If you get it at another provider, upload a copy of the negative results to your profile. Save the receipt for any cost to you, and we’ll reimburse you once you’ve subbed your first day with us.)

It generally takes 5-10 days for Swing to receive your Live Scan results and 2-3 days for TB tests.

Note: If you are not able to successfully complete the TB requirement via risk assessment or skin test, contact us (talent@swingeducation.com), and we'll walk you through the next steps.

Live Scan Background Check

You can complete your Live Scan background check at a WellnessMart location or any other Live Scan location.

  • WellnessMart: WellnessMart scans are free and don’t require an appointment. To get started, log in to your Swing accountand then select the “put me on the WellnessMart list" option. This will automatically put your name into WellnessMart's system for any location that works for you. Then, download and fill out this form and bring it to your appointment. After you complete the scan, your results will automatically be sent to Swing.
  • Other Live Scan Location: If you can’t make it to a WellnessMart, you can go to any Live Scan location. Download and fill out this form and bring it to your appointment. Keep your receipt and Swing will reimburse you after you’ve completed your first day subbing with us.. 

FAQs

  • What if I've already done a Live Scan background check for another organization?
