Fingerprinting Services

Fingerprinting service and training support is available to all 29 school districts in the North Central ESD Region. These services were instituted to assist school districts to comply with state mandated fingerprinting requirements of all new district employees who have unsupervised access to students and first-time applicants for Washington State Teaching Certificates. During the 2015-2016 school year, NCESD fingerprinted over 1,000 personnel.
