Fingerprinting

Fingerprinting services are available through IdentoGO, a third-party provider selected by The Pennsylvania Department of General Services and authorized to provide these services to public school entities.  For your convenience, IdentoGO has a location in the Bucks IU Administration building located at 705 N. Shady Retreat Rd., Doylestown, PA 18901 but the Bucks IU is unable to assist you with any arrangements or services related to fingerprinting - you must contact IndentoGO directly.

Please note that you must work directly with IdentoGO for registration and scheduling – fingerprinting services at the Bucks IU Doylestown location are provided only with an appointment.  You can visit the IdentoGO website to make an appointment at https://uenroll.identogo.com or call their Help Desk at 1-844-321-2101 Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 6:00pm EST.  

Clearances

When working with public and private school students, state and federal clearances and background checks are required to be completed as a prerequisite of your initial or continued employment.  More information is available on the Pennsylvania Department of Education website.

PA Teacher Certifications

Pennsylvania considers the education of its children to be among the highest priorities of state government and has dedicated many resources toward that end. Teaching certifications are handled through the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), and, on their website, you will find information to assist you related to the various stages of certification.
