Background Checks

Every Lakota employee must be fingerprinted and receive BCI and FBI background checks before working in our district. The cost of this procedure is $55, payable by cash (exact change), money order or personal check at the time of fingerprinting. You will need a driver's license or State ID card and will need to provide your Social Security number when you come in for your background check.
