Fingerprinting
&
Background Checks

ALL Jordan School District employees must be fingerprinted and have cleared a background check before they begin working.

Fingerprint Fee Schedule

Classified employees can do this by coming into the Human Resource Department.

  • New hires will need to pay the background check fee with cash or credit card.
  • As required by State law, current classified employees are required to complete a fingerprint. Employees who complete a background check after July 1, 2015, the employee will not be required to complete another background check unless there is a break in service. Employees who completed a background check prior to July 1, 2015 will be required to complete another background check prior to September 1, 2018. These employees will be notified when they will be required to complete the background check.

Licensed employees will need to have this done through USBE (Utah State Board of Education).  When USBE has received your information and request for background check they will add you to CACTUS (Comprehensive Administration of Credentials for Teachers in Utah Schools); you must be on CACTUS to teach or intern with Jordan School District.  Following are instructions, you may do this at home or here in the District Office:

  • You need to go to www.utah.gov/teachers to begin your background check.
  • Once you are there click on “Background Check.”
  • Enter in your information and follow the directions.
  • Pay the required amount with a credit card.
  • After you have paid and completed your information you will need to print the Authorization Letter and take this with you to the livescan location.  The second page of the printout is a list of all locations that do livescan fingerprints.  You may come into the District Office at 7387 Campus View Drive, West Jordan, Utah 84084, or you may choose another location. You must bring the printed Authorization Letter with you.
