Criminal Background Check

Effective on the District put into place the requirement of a background check on all possible new hires.  The MN School Board Association verified that this rule does include substitute teachers, paraprofessionals and coaches.  Minnesota Statute 123B.03 states fees incurred from this request are the responsibility of the individual and not the District requesting such.If you have had a background check done elsewhere within the previous 12 months an authorization to request a copy of that background check will be required.


Frontline Substitute Placement System

Belle Plaine Public Schools uses the Frontline Substitute Placement System.  Upon receipt of a clean background check, you will be entered into the Frontline software system to  receive notice of available substitute needs by phone as well as the ability to log on to Frontline to review upcoming available positions and customize your availability.
