RESC Fingerprinting Information:

Connecticut requires that any person (teachers, administrators, special service staff members, teacher’s aides, custodians, cafeteria employees, etc.) who is hired by a local or regional board of education submit to a state and national criminal history record check within the first 30 days of the date of employment. The process includes the checking of fingerprints by the State Police Bureau of Identification and the Federal Bureau of Identification (FBI). The results of the criminal history record checks (both state and federal) are reported to the employing school district. If the district receives notice of a conviction of a crime by a person holding a certificate, authorization or permit issued by the State Board of Education, the district shall notify the Bureau of Certification and Professional Development.

A person may obtain fingerprint packets (including fingerprinting cards) and may have their fingerprints taken at a local board or education, a Regional Educational Service Center (RESC), or the State Police Bureau of Identification. People fingerprinted at a RESC can have their fingerprint results shared with local or regional boards of education. A written request by the candidate must be submitted to the RESC where the results should be sent.
