Prior to beginning field experience in schools at the baccalaureate level, teacher candidates must be fingerprinted and complete a background check for the county in which they wish to work. All counties are different, so teacher candidates should read the clearance requirements for the specific county that they are interested in. Failure to complete clearance protocols for a county in a timely fashion will result in a delayed start.

Attached are detailed instructions, service center information, and FAQs. Teacher candidates will be required to register online and be printed at one of the approved service centers.

Please be sure to follow all instructions.
