      2. Once the system has found you, it will list your CREDENTIALS.

Please go to Human Resources prior to going to Safety and Security for the fingerprinting form. Payment may be made by money order only, or current employees may choose payroll deduction.   If you have not lived in the state of Ohio for the past 5 years, you will pay $47.25 for both background checks.  If you have lived in Ohio during the past 5 years then you only need to obtain a FBI check and the cost is $22.

(*Dayton Public Schools no longer issues PDU’s for most of their trainings. You will receive contact hours. In order to prove those contact hours to the LPDC you will need to print your class history. It is that easy!)
