Fingerprinting Fee Notice

New York State requires fingerprinting of all school district employees, which currently costs $ 102.00.

It is the responsibility of the employee to pay this fee, and it should be paid at the time of hire using a Visa, MasterCard, or debit card. If the prospective employee does not have a credit/debit card, prepaid cards may be purchased at most local grocery stores or pharmacies. Please make sure your card is activated prior to your fingerprinting appointment with our district's Human Resource Department. Click here for the Fingerprinting Procedure.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this payment of the fingerprinting fee, please contact the Director of Administration at 607-735-3027.
