Background Check

Criminal background checks (CBC) are only good for one year. All Northwest student teachers MUST complete a Missouri CBC regardless of what state you are student teaching. You must create a DESE profile following the instructions on the link below. Once you have been "cleared", you need to get a copy of this profile to the educational leadership office stating that you have been cleared. When signing up to do your fingerprinting you will need a 4-digit registration code; Northwest's registration code is 2301. In addition to the link below showing instructions on how to set up your profile is a link to show fingerprint registration. The average time for completion is two weeks.
