Fingerprint/Badge Registration Instructions

You must complete the Vendor Set Up process before completing fingerprinting and/or requesting issuance of a badge.

The Jessica Lunsford Act (JLA) requires all contracted vendors who are permitted access on school grounds when students are present, who have contact with students, or have access to or control school funds, to undergo a screening process and meet Level 2 screening requirements pursuant to Florida State Statute 1012.32.

Be sure to select the appropriate option below. Read all information thoroughly before proceeding:
