New District Background Check Procedure Implemented

Weber School District, Ogden City School District and Weber State University have joined together to secure LiveScan, a digital image program which allows a criminal background check to be completed within hours. In the past, reports have taken up to 8 weeks to obtain. This quick turnaround assists in safety of our schools.

Effective December 1, 2005, the fees for fingerprinting for background checks will be a total of $25. This change applies to all non-licensed hires, substitutes and non-licensed coaches.

The following outlines the new procedures:

  • The individual completes the appropriate forms with Human Resources, shows a picture ID and Social Security Card, pays $15 fee (check, money order or cash), and secures a voucher to present to Weber State University
  • The individual secures a parking pass from the Information Building at Weber State University and parks in Lot A-2.
  • The individual goes to the McKay Education Building, basement level, west end, pays a $10 fee (check or money order only), and does a live scan of fingerprints.
  • Human Resources will access a designated website to determine the outcome of the background check.

Questions about the process can be answered by contacting Human Resources at 476-7886.
