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.
Fingerprinting is by appointment only. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic ESD 105 is closed to the public and currently limiting fingerprint appointments to Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please wear a mask when entering our building. Only the person being fingerprinted will be permitted to enter our building.
