Background Check

As a general rule with background checks, Bloomfield School District wants to see a clear criminal background check free of any convictions for the last five years. This five year clear guideline can be lessened or lengthened by the severity and frequency of the conviction(s) and response of the individual. Individuals have a duty to self report any convictions that occur after the criminal background check is conducted.

By completing the appropriate background check below, it is understood that consideration for volunteering or employment at BSD is conditional upon an appropriately clear background check  relative to the position for which you are applying.
