NEW EMPLOYEE FINGERPRINTING

All new employees are required to be fingerprinted and screened by the Department of Professional Standards & Equity prior to attending New Employee Orientation.  New employees requiring fingerprinting should consult with their hiring location for appropriate fingerprinting registration instructions.  The fingerprinting process for new employees is different from the process to be cleared for vendor/contractor services.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Failure to follow the correct fingerprinting registration instructions may result in additional fees and delay employment eligibility or issuance of an instructional employee's teaching certificate.

VENDOR FINGERPRINTING

Effective May 12, 2014, fingerprinting services for contractors with the School District of Lee County will be provided by Fieldprint. There are currently multiple local locations that offer Fieldprint fingerprinting services. Those locations, as well as the locations of additional authorized service centers in Florida and other states, are available on the Fieldprint registration website at http://www.fieldprintflorida.com.

Please note: If you are an agent/representative of an insurance company wanting to provide services to District employees (i.e. life insurance, 403(b)s, etc.), you must contact Insurance & Benefits at (239) 337-8321 or [email protected]t prior to beginning any portion of the process in obtaining an ID badge.

Contractors requiring fingerprinting may schedule an appointment at a date and time at a location convenient to them. The process to be cleared to provide services to the District and obtain a uniform statewide ID badge per the Jessica Lunsford Act has not changed. All contractors providing services when students are present or will have direct contact with students when providing services under the contract are required to be fingerprinted and screened by the Department of Professional Standards & Equity. In addition, the contractor’s Form I-9 must be provided to the District prior to badge approval and issuance.
