Washington County School Board requires a Level II Screening Clearance/Background Check on all School District employees, substitutes, student teachers, certain volunteers and contractors as indicated by the Florida Jessica Lundsford Act. Please allow sufficient time for the fingerprint results to be received prior to being sent to the board for approval. You may not begin work until the pre-employment screenings have cleared.
The fingerprinting fee is $50.00 for employees, substitutes, student teachers and volunteers. The Florida Uniform Contractors/Vendor Badge is $75.00. You must preregister at www.cogentid.com prior to coming to the District Office for fingerprinting. No other payment will be accepted.
In order for Washington County to receive your information you must select Washington County on the "County Recipient or Sponsor." If this is not selected, you will be required to re-register and pay for the additional screening.
Fingerprinting will be available on Tuesday and Wednesday every week, no appointments necessary. Unless office is closed.
