Yesterday, I emailed a letter about a new Ohio initiative to strengthen school safety plans and keep our students safer. Almost all of Ohio’s 4,000 schools have submitted a school safety plan as required by state law, and I appreciate the time you have spent on those plans.

Permanent certificates with expired background checks will be inactivated beginning July 1

Educators who hold permanent certificates and permanent non-tax certificates are required by state law to update their FBI criminal background checks every five years through the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI). In addition, an updated BCI background check also is required if the certificate holder has lived outside Ohio within the past five years. Because this law was put into place five years ago, educators holding these certificates need to update the background checks when they expire this year, if they have not already done so. Educators may view the dates of their previous background checks through the Educator Profile on the department’s website at education.ohio.gov.
