Fingerprinting

  • ESD 105 offers digital fingerprint background checks for educators seeking certificates and those seeking certified or classified employment. 

    The live scan equipment allows the quality of prints to be checked on the equipment when they're being taken, creating few necessary retakes and without the need for any fingerprints to be inked onto a card.  Fingerprints taken through live scanning are generally cleared within just 1 to 2 weeks.

    ESD 105 will record applicants’ basic demographic information, and the live digital scan will submit fingerprints electronically to the Washington State Patrol. All fingerprint record checks will reside with OSPI.
