Independent Contractor Fingerprinting and Background Check Requirements

All individuals with whom a Contractor/Business contracts, or any employee, agent or subcontractor of a Contractor must undergo a preliminary background check with the District.  Individuals who will have direct, unsupervised contact with students shall also be required to submit fingerprints and to undergo a state and nationwide fingerprinting and criminal history records check pursuant to ORS 326.603 and ORS 326.607.  The Oregon Department of Education provides such fingerprinting services for Contractors. Individuals, or the Contractor, and not the District, shall be responsible for the fees associated with fingerprinting and the criminal history records check, not to exceed the actual cost.

Note: ODE charges $59 for the background check and there is an additional $12.50 fee to have fingerprints completed for the background check.
