Why do I need to be fingerprinted?
Connecticut law requires local school systems to have all new employees, including substitute teachers, fingerprinted for state and national criminal history checks.
I would like to apply to multiple schools. What is the process?
EASTCONN will fingerprint you and maintain your information in our Registry. We will send your information to the schools of your choice. You must then apply individually to the schools you wish to be employed with.
Can my fingerprint results be shared with other Regional Educational Service Centers (RESCs) or school districts?
YES. A written request must be submitted to the fingerprinting office that includes your name, address, Social Security #, school districts you wish us to notify and your signature.
I was fingerprinted for a single school district. Can my results be shared with other school districts?
No. School districts are not authorized to share with other districts.

I worked for one week at a school district and will be working again this year. Do I need to be fingerprinted again?
