Welcome to Fingerprinting

ODE does fingerprint background checks for newly hired non-certified school district employees, charter schools, private schools and their contractors as authorized in ORS 326.603. This statute does not allow ODE to require fingerprints if a person was fingerprinted in a school district or private school and is currently seeking to work in another district or private school, unless the person lived outside the state during the time interval between working for the two districts or private schools.
