All adults working in Idaho public schools (certificated and non-certificated), or applying for certification, are currently required to have the results of a background investigation check on file with the State Department of Education. This process includes:
The State Department of Education has approved a new payment process for the Background Records Office. This process, which was designed to assist the districts in meeting the five-day submission requirement, will allow a district to make advance deposits to cover fingerprinting to the Background Records Office. As fingerprints are received from the district, the processing fees will be subtracted from the balance of the prepaid account. Districts will be notified when the account is getting low on funds. For more information, please contact Shannon Haas at (208) 332-6888, email@example.com; or Danielle Rumsey at (208) 332-6883, firstname.lastname@example.org.

It is the State Department of Education's current policy not to send results to the applicant if the results are over three months old. To be consistent with policy, a three months separation from service or pending change in status requires a new background check. The results may be released to the individual employee with this completed and signed form if their fingerprint check is less than three months old.
