Fingerprinting in Washington State


Fingerprinting is a Washington State requirement for all individuals who have regular, unsupervised access to children within the P-12 system in the state, including those seeking certificates and those employed in a certified or classified position.

ESD 123 offers Fingerprinting Services to all school district employees, utilizing a digital live scan system for fingerprinting that digitally takes prints and transmits them to OSPI. ESD 123 also offers request-based fingerprinting via a portable fingerprint unit, as well as reprints at no charge for rejected fingerprint cards.
