Background check appointment procedure


Background checks are by appointment only. No walk-in appointments. Please arrive on time for your background check. This ensures time between appointments for sanitizing equipment and preparing for the next applicant. Early arrivals are not allowed.
What to bring with you for your background check:
Please be prepared!
1. Identification: Bring your state-issued ID, driver's license or passport. You will be asked to provide your ID. This must be a valid ID (not expired).
2. Authorization Form: For background checks for teaching licenses, day care, child care, after-school care, real estate, food banks, federal agencies and other entities, you must bring a background check authorization form from the agency requesting your background check. 
3. Fee: Background checks are free for Grand County School District employees and volunteers. For all others, there is a fee payable by check or cash. Check with your agency or entity to see what the protocol is for payment of fees, if an agency is paying.
Cancellation / Change: If you need to cancel or change your background check appointment please call 435-719-4758 as soon as possible.
