Fingerprinting and Background Check Services

Buckeye Local Schools is pleased to announce that we now provide fingerprinting services at the Buckeye Board of Education Office:  3044 Columbia Road, Medina.

Fingerprinting will be done by appointment only between the hours of 9am-2pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.  To schedule an appointment, please use the calendar below to verify a vacant date and time, then fill out the fingerprint application form located below the fingerprinting calendar.

Our fingerprinting is done electronically and transmitted directly to the BCI (Ohio check) and the FBI (Federal check).

Items needed at the appointment:

  • Background Information Form.  Please print the form found here and on the above link and bring the  completed document with you the day of the appointment.
  • Valid Photo ID.  Driver’s License, Passport, State ID Card or school photo identification.  Without this you cannot be fingerprinted.
  • Exact cash or check made payable to Buckeye Local Schools.  No credit/debit cards will be accepted.


  • BCI only (Ohio)       $27.00
  • FBI only (Federal)   $29.00
  • BCI and FBI             $56.00

PLEASE NOTE:  Per Board policy, all new employees must have both a BCI and FBI check dated within the last 365 days of hire.  You can request copies of these from previous employers. After this initial background check, you do not need to repeat your BCI so long as you continuously live in Ohio, and FBI checks must be done every 5 years.

Results will be sent directly to the Buckeye Board of Education and any other appropriate agency requested by the candidate. All pre-employment requirements must be completed before the candidate may receive the Buckeye Board of Education approval to begin employment.  The Board meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

For additional questions please contact Vicki Calvin, Superintendent’s Office, Buckeye Board of Education at 330.722.8257, ext. 1002.
