Rapback Service

The Ohio Department of Education provides notifications about criminal arrests or convictions of licensed educators and pupil transportation drivers to the school districts where they are employed. The information comes from the RAPBACK Service of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI). The bureau alerts the department about arrests or convictions of state-licensed educators by contacting the Office of Professional Conduct. If the matters pertain to state-licensed pupil transportation drivers, the RAPBACK system notifies the Department’s Office of Pupil Transportation.
