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.
