California public school employees and substitutes must be fingerprinted, and a criminal background clearance must be received by the employing school district and county office prior to new employees and substitutes rendering paid services.
If you have been fingerprinted for the Commission on Teacher Credentialing, have a Certificate of Clearance, or are enrolled in a credential program and have been fingerprinted for the Commission, you will still need to be fingerprinted by the district and/or county office of education. By law, employing agencies are not allowed to share fingerprint clearances with other employing agencies. Every employing agency has live scan authorization forms preprinted with their individual names and codes. These forms authorize the DOJ to forward clearance information for prospective employees or substitutes to that particular agency.
The Shasta County Office of Education maintains the county-wide substitute teacher list, Classified Consortium list for various substitute positions for participating districts, as well as an automated calling system for county run programs. Once your completed application packet has been returned to the Credentials/Substitute Services office, you will be given a Live Scan form and instructions for fingerprinting.
Take the Live Scan form to one of the following agencies:
3400 Bechelli Lane, Redding
Hours: Monday thru Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Individuals who have been convicted of serious and/or violent crimes are precluded from being hired by California public school districts. Individuals who are awaiting trial for serious and/or violent crimes are also precluded from rendering service in California public schools until the matter has been legally concluded.
