New Employee Background Checks

Why are background checks required?

Sevier School District (SSD) is charged with the responsibility to protect the health and safety of all students and to protect the property of the Board of Education. To help meet this responsibility, SSD requires a criminal background check. This background check is incorporated as part of the district hiring process.

Who Needs a Background Check?

All new district employees and certain volunteers are required to complete a background check as a condition of employment or volunteer. Unless a person has completed a background check through the Utah State Office of Education within 12 months of the date of hire, he or she must complete a background check through the district.

Background Check Instructions

New employees, substitutes, and volunteers needing a background check will be fingerprinted at the District Office. Employees should bring a driver’s license or other form of picture ID and their Social Security card with them at the time of fingerprinting. There is a fee charged to cover the cost of the background check.

Please call (435) 896-8214 to schedule an appointment for fingerprinting.

USOE Background Check Requirement for Educators

If you are in the process of applying for a teaching license through the Utah State Office of Education, you may need to have a background check completed by USOE, in which case you would not need to have a check done through Sevier School District. If you think this may apply to you, check with the Human Resources Department.
