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 Checks/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 Taft Center for Innovation/Board of Education. Volunteer fingerprinting is completed Wednesdays from 10 a.m. until Noon; Thursdays from 3 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.
