Hiring process - background check and reference stage

Do hiring teams typically check reference and do a background check on multiple candidates when they are getting ready to hire for a position?

What I mean by that is, if they do a background check does that mean you are one of the top contenders, or possibly even the top contender?

Background checks often cost money (although maybe larger districts have a great deal on the cost), so it's usually the very last thing before hire. No need to do a background check if they don't like the person on interview. Good luck!

I'm not sure about background checks, but around here some schools will call references before people even come in for interviews. Especially in some positions, there's somewhat of a teacher shortage here, so I think they do this so they can make an offer immediately after interviews rather than waiting around for reference checks and potentially losing their top candidate to another job in the meantime.
