Fingerprint Clearance Cards

The non-identity verified fingerprint clearance card application, includes a box for “Arizona Charter School Board Member/Applicant”. To determine the status of an individual’s fingerprint clearance card or fingerprint clearance card application, visit the Arizona Department of Public Safety’s website.
