All applicants for initial educator licensure are required to be fingerprinted in order to establish positive identification for a state and federal (FBI) criminal history background check.
How are my fingerprints used?
Your fingerprints will be used to access FBI criminal history records. A license may be denied if the background check reveals a criminal history of convictions or felonies or misdemeanors of moral turpitude or other documented evidence of improper behavior that could establish unfitness for working in proximity of children and youth.
