The Norwalk City School District will conduct a criminal records check for all applicants regardless of the position prior to recommendation to the Board of Education for employment. The applicable fee for this is to be paid by the applicant at the time the check is done. The cost for this is: BCI: $27.00 & FBI: $29, for a total of $56.00. This fee is payable by cash, money order, or credit card. Ohio law disqualifies individuals with certain criminal backgrounds from employment in certain positions in public schools and any offer of employment will be contingent on the results of a criminal background check.
All employment offers are contingent on background check results being acceptable and Board approval.
The Norwalk City School District may review publicly available information from a variety of sources including public records and the internet regarding applicants for positions.
The Board of Education does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (including sexual orientation and transgender identity), disability, age, religion, military status ancestry, genetic information (collectively, "Protected Classes"), or any other legally protected category, in its programs and activities, including employment opportunities.
