Fingerprinting

New York State law requires that all persons seeking employment in a school district must be fingerprinted, have background checks and be issued a clearance by the state education department prior to starting work.

New employees who have not completed this process in another school district must request a fingerprinting packet at the Guilderland Human Resources Office immediately upon returning all paperwork. A fee is charged and must be forwarded in the form of a certified check or money order made payable to the “New York State Education Department.”

The fingerprinting process takes about three weeks to complete, and it is therefore important that prospective employees complete this process as soon as possible. At the present time, fingerprinting is available by appointment at the locations listed below.
