DCI Criminal History Background Check
Iowa schools are requiring all adults who work in their schools, in any capacity, to be able to prove that they have been screened by the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation for any history of criminal behavior. This background check will need to be completed on a yearly basis (every January). Please see Erin Zidlicky, education department, to complete the form.
If you will be doing a classroom experience outside of the state of Iowa you will need to contact the school district where you will be in the classroom to complete the required background check for that district.
Luther College is not responsible for students who are denied access to agencies requiring proof of a background check prior to working with their children.
