FINGERPRINT & BACKGROUND CHECKS

Connecticut State Statue requires all students in teacher/educator programs to undergo state and national criminal history background check, requiring fingerprint processing, before participating in school-based field experiences and student teaching.  The procedures for obtaining the background check and valid period cannot be waived for any reason.  Students not meeting these requirements will NOT be permitted to participate in a school-based experience.
