    Required State Fingerprinting Process

    The 80th Legislative Session authorized Senate Bill 9 which expands the criminal history review by the State Board for Educators Certification (SBEC) to all public school employees including substitute teachers and subsitute nurses.  Substitutes must complete the process prior to being hired at KISD.  Substitutes must pay a fee of $47.50 for this process.  These fees will not be reimbursed by the district.  If you have had your fingerprints completed for another Texas School District, you should not have to repeat this process.  However, if you have completed fingerprinting for other reasons (including childcare providers, handgun licenses, nursing, etc.) you will be required to have them registered again to meet the requirements outlined in Senate Bill 9.
    If fingerprints are to be completed, we will contact you the week leading up to your scheduled orientation with the appropriate forms.
