Fingerprinting Notice

Fingerprinting Notice…

All certified, non-certified employees and substitutes hired on or after January 1, 2008, must submit fingerprint identification information to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Department of Public Safety (DPS) before beginning employment. After a recommendation for hire is received, the Poteet ISD Human Resources Department will forward demographic information on the applicant to TEA. TEA will email a “FAST Pass” form to the District, which will be used by the applicant to schedule an appointment with TEA for fingerprint.
Professional employees will be required to acquire fingerprinting prior to employment with the district.  The District will schedule the appointment online for auxiliary and substitute positions. Once the appointment has been scheduled, the applicant will be notified of the time and date of the appointment.  It is the applicants responsibility to keep the scheduled appointment or contact and change the date and time if necessary.  The applicant must then take the FAST Pass form, the online receipt, and a photo identification (driver’s license or state issued identification card, etc.) to their scheduled appointment. It is recommended that the applicant keep possession of the FAST Pass form until they are sure that their background check has been cleared. If cleared, the applicant will be contacted by the Human Resource Department to process for employment.
