Effective July 1, 2009, Indiana law requires all new employees and volunteers to obtain an Expanded Criminal History Check. This includes substitute teachers, parent volunteers, NYO Coaches, etc. Northwestern has contracted Safe Hiring Solutions to provide background check services to our applicants, employees and volunteers.

Please see instructions for obtaining a background check if you are the following:


Volunteers/Volunteer Coaches/NYO Coaches

New Hire Athletic Coaches

Non-Certified (Support Staff) New Hires

Certified New Hires

Current Employees

Northwestern is a member of a consortium that has the ability to share your Expanded Criminal History Check reports from Safe Hiring Solutions with other participating schools. This is particularly beneficial to substitute and student teachers, or applicants applying to multiple districts for employment.
