Fingerprinting for Private School - Approved Vendor Selection

link to fingerprinting registration for private school educators

This is for those private schools that do not require licensure but where the governing board of the nonpublic school requires a fingerprint background check pursuant to 22-1-121 C.R.S. (If your private school requires licensure, follow the steps above.) Fingerprint results come directly to CDE. These results of fingerprints submitted under this statute cannot be used for licensing purposes.

Check with your private school before proceeding as some conduct their own fingerprint-based criminal history checks utilizing the V.E.C.H.S. Program.
