    Finger Printing Volunteers Fingerprint
    Finger Printing Procedures – D11 volunteers who are requested by school staff to perform their duties without supervision of a D11 employee must be fingerprinted and background checked as we do potential employees.  The cost of a fingerprint check is $54.50 plus an additional $5.00 per alias/maiden name.
    Charter School volunteers cost is $72.40 plus $5.00 per alias/maiden name as directed by Business Services. 
    Payment must be made at the time the fingerprints are taken. 
    Volunteer Services will only accept checks or money orders.
    Step 1: 
    Charter School volunteers begin at Business Services to pay for the cost of fingerprints.  Business Services is located in the main administration building. 1115 North El Paso Street. A receipt from Business Services will need to accompany a charter school volunteer to proceed with the paperwork in Volunteer Services.
    In-district volunteers begin at Volunteer Services by completing a Volunteer Services Fingerprint Checklist.  Volunteer Services is located at 711 East San Rafael.
    Step 2: 
    Elementary, middle and high schools may authorize the charges to a Fund 10 account.  Elementary and middle schools ONLY may authorize the charge to a Fund 74 account.  Payment from a grant, Fund 22 is also acceptable with signed authorization of the grant manager.  High school ONLY may remit a check, however the check should accompany the individual(s) at the time the fingerprints are taken.  The journal entry form needs to be used if charging to a fund 10, 74 or 22.  It is available online on the intranet.  Completed and signed journal entry forms must accompany the individual(s) when requesting fingerprints to be taken OR must be sent to Volunteer Services before the individual(s) come to have their prints taken.The potential volunteer proceeds to Security to have their fingerprints taken. 
    Step 3: 
    Security ONLY does fingerprinting Tuesday and Thursday – 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. and Wednesday – 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.
    Step 4:  
    Results of the fingerprint check can take up to six weeks to return.  A report will be shared with the school administrator when the results are available.
