Welcome to the Lakewood City Schools Human Resources web page. The Lakewood City School District actively seeks candidates who wish to work in a progressive, dynamic environment. We are proud of the tradition of diverse cultures, education and opportunities that exist in Lakewood. We attain our success due to the cooperative efforts of involved and compassionate families, community members and staff who share knowledge, facilitate learning and inspire excellence!

The selection and enhancement of certificated and support staff is of the highest priority in Lakewood. Each year, our Department advances and promotes student achievement by actively pursuing and hiring the highest quality staff for the Lakewood City School District. We then work to provide support to teachers, non-certificated staff and administrators in order to provide staff and students with the best possible teaching and learning environment.

BACKGROUND CHECKS

Initial applicants for a license must complete both BCI and FBI criminal background checks. These checks need to be less than 365 days old to be considered valid for licensing purposes.

Educators who are renewing a license or permit and have lived continuously in the State of Ohio for the previous five years, and have a BCI background check on file with ODE, will need to complete only an FBI criminal background check once every five years. Educators who have not lived continuously in the state for the past five years will need to complete both BCI and FBI background checks.

Educators who hold a permanent certificate are still required to submit the required background checks once every five years. Permanent certificate holders who have lived continuously in Ohio for those five years, however, will only need to submit FBI background checks.

Volunteer Background Check/Fingerprinting

All volunteers that work with students must go through a background check as well. Volunteers must be referred by the building principal or secretary to have their fingerprinting completed with the Human Resources Office located at the Board of Education.  Volunteer fingerprinting is completed Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. until 1:45 p.m.  Additionally, volunteers can be fingerprinted on Mondays from 10:00 a.m. until 10:45 a.m.
