CURRENT CPS EMPLOYEES - CPS employees are not required to submit a background check report to the Talent Office. This exemption does not include employees of CPS Charter Schools. Charter School employees, please see the directions above in the section titled "How To Obtain Your Background Results".
If you are currently employed by CPS and are not a Charter School employee, please click the 'SUBMIT' button below to complete the field experience registration process. Upon verification of your employment, you will receive an email response regarding your field experience request. Please ensure that you have provided accurate contact information above for future correspondences.
ALL NON-CPS EMPLOYEES - Please submit a copy of your criminal background check results from both the FBI and ISP (Illinois State Police) to the CPS Talent Office. The background results must be dated within one calendar year of the date in which you submit this online registration form. The Talent Office must receive your criminal background check results within 90 days of submission of your online registration request. If both steps are not completed within 90 days of submitting this online form, it will be determined that you no longer have an interest in completing Field Experience with Chicago Public Schools and your request will be purged from our system.
Criminal Background Check Results can be mailed or delivered in-person to the address of:
