Fingerprint Information

Fingerprint Information

 

The State of Michigan "School Safety" legislation (2005 PA 129-131 and 138), requires that all school employees, substitutes, or those assigned to regularly or continuously work under contract for any school, must be fingerprinted via the Livescan fingerprinting process.

The key provisions of the law include the following:

All school employees, substitutes, or those assigned to regularly or continuously work under contract for any school, must be fingerprinted via the Livescan fingerprinting process.

New employees must be printed prior to beginning their employment with the district.

Upon being fingerprinted, the Michigan Department of Education will report to districts, all school employees with a recorded criminal conviction. Specific actions are required by districts, employees and or Boards of Education based on the nature of the conviction reported.

Finally, the law requires school staff to self-report if they are arraigned or charged with reportable offenses as defined within this legislation. The employee must self-report to the district Superintendent and the Michigan Department of Education.
