1.) BCI/FBI Background Checks

 

Currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions, background checks are not being offered at Gahanna-Jefferson's District Office. Therefore, an appointment will need to be scheduled with an open Webcheck Station. Location and contact information can be found at the following website:

https://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/Business/Services-for-Business/WebCheck/Webcheck-Community-Listing

Based on the location you choose, they will need to provide you with pricing and instructions on what is needed in order to have your background checks completed.  It is very important that you follow specific instructions provided to you by the District when having your background checks conducted.  Please contact Rebecca Hull in the Office of Human Resources at (614) 478-5565 or HullR@GJPS.org to provide you with details before you schedule an appointment, or you will risk having to pay for another background check to be completed.

 

Frequency:  With continuous employment, this requirement must be done once every five years; FBI only.

OhioHealth CPR training information

OhioHealth Coaches Education Schedule

3.) Fundamentals of Coaching

 

This course is online through the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).  The cost is $65.

 

Frequency:  This is a one-time only training.

 

4.) Concussion in Sports

 

This free course is online through the NFHS or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

 

Frequency:  This training must be done once every three years.

 

5.) Sudden Cardiac Arrest

 

This free course is online through the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) using the Learning Management System (LMS), which can be accessed through individual OH/ID accounts.  On the LMS homepage at top right, select the Course Catalog.   Search for “sudden cardiac arrest” to find the course.

 

Per ODE, some OH/ID account users may have difficulty accessing the LMS link.   In that case, please watch the video and read the handout listed under the "for coaches" section on the Ohio Department of Health's website.  After you have watched the video and read the handout, please complete the attached Sudden Cardiac Arrest Acknowledgement Form and submit it as your certificate of completion.

 

*Please note, the NFHS Simon's Heart course cannot be accepted!

 

Frequency:  This training must be done once every year.

 

6.) Pupil Activity Course

 

In order to apply for a Pupil Activity Permit (PAP), you must first take part in an ODE-approved or nationally-approved pupil activity program (unless you hold a current medical license; please notify the Office of Human Resources and provide a copy of your credentials).

OhioHealth provides ‘live’ pupil activity training free for Gahanna-Jefferson coaches.  Visit www.ohiohealth.com/sports-medicine-classes for location, date and registration information.  You may take a live training course elsewhere at your own expense as long as it is an ODE-approved program (visit ODE’s website for more details).   If you prefer to take an online course, a nationally-approved program, First Aid, Health and Safety for Coaches, is available through NFHS.  The cost is $45.

 

Frequency:  This training must be completed each time you renew your PAP (once every three to five years, depending upon the length of your permit).

 

7.) Pupil Activity Permit

 

*Applying for a Pupil Activity Permit should be the final step after all of the other listed requirements have been fulfilled and submitted to the Athletic Office.*

Applications must be completed online through ODE’s website using an OH/ID account.   For the application process, you will need to reference our District’s IRN #046961.   The cost is $45 for a 3-year permit; to certain teachers who hold specific types of educator licenses, 4-year and 5-year permits are available at $60 and $75, respectively.

When you submit and pay for your application through ODE, it will automatically be forwarded to the Office of Human Resources for an electronic signature and verification of requirements.   Once verified, ODE will finalize and process your application, then email a copy of the permit directly to you as well as to the Office of Human Resources.

 

Frequency:  This permit must be renewed once every three to five years, depending upon if you hold an educator license.  For non-educators, the frequency is once every three years.

 

8.) Register on FinalForms

 

Once you are registered as a coach by the Athletic Department, you will receive a confirmation email for FinalForms.  FinalForms is used to hold student-athlete medical information, to track eligibility, and to monitor your certifications/requirements.  All coaches must be on FinalForms.
