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.

Background Checks

HOUSE BILL 1 BACKGROUND CHECK REVISIONS
EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2010

With the passage of House Bill 1, new background check requirements have been enacted for licensed educators in Ohio. 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. Currently, they must complete both BCI and FBI checks whenever they renew. Educators who have not lived continuously in the state for the past five years will need to complete both a BCI and FBI background check.

Educators with multiple licenses only need to submit the required background checks whenthey are applying for the renewal of the license or permit that is of the longest duration. 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.
