BCI & FBI Fingerprinting & Van Certification Policy

All volunteers and new employees must undergo background checks.

    • All faculty must complete a BCI and FBI background check (and are therefore part of the Ohio Rapback system) based upon their obtaining an Ohio Department of Education teaching certificate. Additionally, all faculty must have FBI checks completed prior to each school year.
    • All CVCA coaches and extracurricular adult leaders must obtain a Student Activities Permit and have an FBI check annually before working with students.
    • Non-teaching staff must obtain an ODE Student Monitor Permit each year before working with students. Additionally, all faculty must have FBI checks completed prior to each school year.
    • All volunteers must complete both an FBI and BCI check annually before having student contact.

Students over 18 years of age chaperoning an overnight trip or hosting an international student must complete both an FBI and BCI background check.

Note: It is the responsibility of an event-sponsoring faculty member to ensure that fingerprint results for all volunteers and chaperones have been taken and results received prior to the event.

 

Van Certification
Any employee who needs to transport students to any school sponsored activity, must be Van Driver Certified per the Ohio State Law and CVCA. Failure to be certified may result in the employee receiving a minor misdemeanor charge and a possibility of CVCA losing its transportation license and fined. Those needing to be Van Certified should see Mr. Don Schall. This process must be completed 21 days prior to the date of the event you will drive.
