Fingerprinting for Public School Employment

If you have never been fingerprinted through the N.J. Department of Education OR you were fingerprinted through the NJDOE prior to 2/21/2003, then please follow the instructions below:

Criminal History Instructions for New Applicants

PLEASE BE SURE TO COMPLETE AND REMIT PAYMENT FOR BOTH STEPS. (Criminal History Review and MorphoTrak)

After both steps (MorphoTrack and Criminal History Review) have been completed, you will receive a letter from the state approving you for public school employment.

The county code is: 15
The district code is: 1590

Archiving Your Fingerprints for Public School Employment
If you had a livescan fingerprint from Sagem Morpho after 02/21/2003 then you will only need to have your fingerprints archived. The cost for the archive is $27.50 payable online by credit card. Payment is required at the time of the request. Please note: you will need your “PCN” number, which can be found on your original receipt.

You can archive your fingerprints by visiting the Criminal History Review Unit website at: http://www.nj.gov/education/educators/crimhist/ and selecting the second option, “Archive Application Requests and Duplicate Approval Letter Requests.”

Should you have any questions regarding the fingerprinting process please contact Ms. Jean Perrotti at (856) 629-9500, ext. 1202.
