FINGERPRINTING AND BADGE RENEWAL INFORMATION

The Sarasota County School District is committed to keeping our students and staff members safe. All employees, student teaching interns, vendors, consultants and contractors will need to submit fingerprints and undergo a background check. See below for more information on what to bring with you when you are printed.

Jessica Lunsford Act (Pertaining to Contractors and Vendors)

On May 2, 2005 the Jessica Lunsford Act was signed into legislation. This Act provided several safeguards to protect Florida's children from sexual predators. In addition to toughening the regulation of registered offenders, this Act expanded the background check requirements for school districts to include all contracted workers and consultants. This law enables the school district to better protect the children in its care.

In addition, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement agreed to implement a database to track arrests of school district employees and contractors and notify the school districts when an employee is arrested. This new tracking system will help ensure that the children in our schools remain safe.
