All certified educators who are currently employed by a school district in Texas must submit fingerprints to the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) and undergo a national criminal history background check.
Prior to your employment with LPCA, your personal information will be loaded into the State Board for Education Certification (SBEC) tool. Usually within 24 hours, the HR Department receives notice of whether your fingerprints are already on file. If they are not on file, a Fast Pass will be generated by TEA. We will then send you the Fast Pass so that you can make an appointment to be fingerprinted.
Once you have been fingerprinted, the district will receive your criminal history information and either clear you to begin employment or withdraw the offer of employment.
If you have any questions regarding the fingerprint process, you may submit them to [email protected].
