Green Local Schools values the opportunity to provide public school mentoring experiences for pre-service educators and service providers in the form of student teaching placements, classroom observations, internships and other short- and long-term options for practical field experiences in our classrooms and school buildings. As a result of our continued commitment to collaborating with our partner colleges and universities in the region, definitions and guidelines have been developed in an effort to make placement of pre-service teachers and service providers as effective as possible.
Ohio law requires that all individuals who work in the public schools have baseline BCII (state) and FBI (federal) criminal background checks at the time they apply for their first Ohio educator license, certificate or permit, and those BCI and FBI background checks must be no older than one year (365 days) when used for initial licensure and/or initial employment with a school district.
As long as the employee resides continuously in Ohio and continues to work for the district, the FBI background check must be repeated every five (5) years. Six (6) months before background check expiration (and monthly until recheck is complete), the Office of Human Resources will send a renewal reminder via email.
The mission of the Office of Human Resources is to attract, hire, retain, and support a high-quality workforce that positively impacts learning in our schools and community.
