Questions about the Colorado licensure process?
Required Background Check: Upon hire, both licensed and classified subs must complete a background check specific to Poudre School District. For licensed subs, this is in addition to what CDE required for licensure. The cost for the background check $40.00 for classified subs and $28.00 for licensed subs at the substitutes expense. More information about background requirements will be discussed at the sub meeting.
