Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to volunteer to work with the children of Mentor Schools. We are always working to provide a safe educational environment for our students. With this in mind, the district requires all volunteers have a background check completed by Mentor Public Schools. Please know that this process is done on a school-year basis; you will need to be fingerprinted EACH SCHOOL YEAR that you volunteer.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school principal.

Thank you again for being part of the educational journey!


Background checks are run at the Mentor Board of Education office Door 1. 

Located at 6451 Center Street,  Mentor, OH 44060     No appointment needed. 

Office hours are Mon-Weds-Fri from 11:30am-4:30-pm. 

****Photo ID required to run the background check****

You will be asked to provide your Social Security number.

Minors must have a consent form signed by a parent or guardian.

The school will be notified once you have cleared. Contact your building to follow-up.

 Results may take up to 30 business days.


We will be needing volunteers for our upcoming Fun Run Fundraiser.  Please make sure you have your fingerprinting completed!
