If you are planning to apply for a Washington State Teaching Certificate visit your Educational Service District (ESD) office first. Digital (live scan) fingerprint machines are available in all nine ESD offices.
Live scan technology takes high-quality prints by scanning the fingers of both hands and creating a digital image. The electronic scanner is easy to use and eliminates the need to ink your fingerprints onto a special card. The addition of digital technology to the fingerprint process speeds the fingerprinting process by eliminating the need for mail and scanning.
Olympic ESD 114 offers the fingerprinting services Monday-Friday 9:00am-3:00pm by appointment. Please call for an appointment at 360.478.6881.
Fees for this service are as follows:
$78.00 for contractors, certification and school district employees
$25.00 re-submittals that were taken at a different ESD location (if you are a re-submittal, bring all fingerprint cards and information previously received)
We accept cash, MasterCard and Visa. We do not accept personal checks for fingerprinting.
Generally, all job and certification applicants pay for their own fingerprint check, unless the potential employer makes a different arrangement.
