BACKGROUND CHECKS & BADGING
Ohio law requires that schools, districts, and Educational Service Centers (ESCs) must request background checks for applicants who will be assigned duties involving interaction with or the regular responsibility for children.
As required by Ohio law, the District performs both an Ohio criminal background check and an FBI criminal background check, conducted by the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCII), on all district employees along with non-employees who will work with students or have the potential of being alone with students (contractors, volunteers, vendors, and consultants).
Once an applicant has been identified for hire, a background check is authorized.
The background check is scheduled with the Safety and Security Office.
Office of Safety & Security
115 S. Ludlow St. (Free parking behind building)
Dayton, OH 45402
Monday through Friday
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The applicant should report to the Safety and Security Department and bring:
- A driver’s license or
- State identification or
- Passport or social security card and
- $47.25 ($22.00 for BCI or $25.25 for FBI) payable by money order or cashier’s check ONLY
Once a clear background check is received, the applicant is notified and the hiring process continues.
Background check clearance could take a short as 24 hours or as long as a few months, depending on a number of factors. In the event the check takes longer than anticipated, contact the Office of Safety and Security.
Upon board approval for hiring, the applicant is scheduled to receive his/her DPS identification badge to access job appropriate locations.
The new employee is scheduled to complete the ID badging process.
In the event that an ID badge is lost, stolen, or destroyed, the badge holder will be responsible to pay the replacement cost. Replacement badges are $10 each, payable by cash only. Please call the Office of Safety and Security ahead of arrival.
Worn or damaged badges will be replaced at no cost if the damaged badge is returned to the Office of Safety and Security.
ID badges are the property of Dayton Public Schools. ID badges, keys and all other District property must be returned to the building principal, immediate supervisor, or Dayton Public Schools designee when employment is terminated either by the school district or at the will of the employee.
Those with identification badges must exemplify the highest moral character, behavior, and leadership while also adhering to strong and sound ethical standards.
