    • If you have been fingerprinted for employment at a Vermont school district within the last year, complete the "Request for Criminal Record Check/Title 16" form and check the box requesting that a secondary dissemination be sent to us from the district where you originally completed the criminal record check process. It is possible that the original district may not have retained a copy and if this is the case, you will need to complete the full criminal record check process again. In addition, a "Release for Subscription Service" form and the "Agency of Human Services Vulnerable Population Check" form are required. 
    • If you have not been fingerprinted for employment at a Vermont school district within the last year, you will need to complete the following forms: "Request for Criminal Record Check/Title 16", "VCIC Fingerprint Authorization Certificate", "Release for Subscription Service", and the "Agency of Human Services Vulnerable Population Check". 

    Call the Human Resources Office (802) 652-7255 to make an appointment to submit these forms. At your appointment, bring all completed forms along with $13.25 (cash/check) for the State Criminal Record Check fee and a current passport or two forms of Government Issued ID (i.e.. Driver's License, Birth Certificate, Social Security Card, Employment Authorization Card). At this meeting an authorized district representative will verify your information and complete the "VCIC Fingerprinting Authorization Certificate" so that you may proceed with the fingerprinting process.
