Charter schools must ensure that their personnel have completed the appropriate statutory fingerprinting process. Please review A.R.S. §15-183(C)(5)
and A.R.S. §15-512
to make sure you are following all applicable provisions, including the background investigation requirements.
On September 14, 2016, the Arizona Charter Schools Association and the Board partnered for a webinar covering the ins and outs of statutory fingerprinting requirements and identifying resources available to help schools ensure compliance. A recording of the webinar and the presentation slides may be accessed below.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety has issued guidance regarding fingerprinting authorizations for charter schools. This guidance is included below.
