Why are background checks required?
Ogden School District is charged with the responsibility to protect the health and safety of all students and to protect the property of the Board of Education. To help meet this responsibility, the Ogden District requires a criminal background check. This background check is incorporated as part of the district hiring process. (See Board Policy) 


Who needs a background check?
All Ogden School District employees must be fingerprinted and have cleared a background check before they begin working. 


What are the steps to completing a background check?
• Current Licensed Employees of Ogden School District
Begin the fingerprinting process by accessing https://secure.utah.gov/elr/welcome.html, paying the $40.00 fee required by the State, downloading the LiveScan form, and bringing it into Human Resources (NOTE: When asked on the state website if you want to fingerprint on card or do LiveScan, please choose LiveScan). There are no additional charges if you fingerprint in Human Resources. If you choose to go to another LiveScan site there is a potential processing fee of $20.00. New legislation requires licensed people to complete a new background check every time their license is up for renewal or is upgraded. The fingerprint process must be completed and cleared prior to renewing or upgrading your license. 

• Current Education Support Professional/Volunteer Employees of Ogden City School District
As required by State law, current Education Support Professional employees are required to complete a fingerprint background check. Employees who complete a background check after July 1, 2015, will not be required to complete another background check unless there is a break in service. Employees who completed a background check prior to July 1, 2015 will be required to complete another background check prior to September 1, 2018. These employees will be notified when they will be required to complete the background check. Once notified, you will need to complete a Request for Electronic Applicant Background Check form in Human Resources and pay the appropriate fee as shown below.
