Every person who wishes to serve as a Texarkana Independent School District employee, volunteer, private teacher or contractor, or any other person who will have contact with TISD students shall have a criminal history search performed. The 80th Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 9 (SB9) which mandated the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to acquire criminal history through fingerprint submission on:

  1. All certified educators who are currently employees
  2. All substitutes
  3. Non-certified employees hired after January 1, 2008.
  4. This process requires the individual to hold a state-issued driverís license or state-issued ID card.

Effective July 1, 2017, all applicants will be responsible for any fees associated with getting fingerprinted for any position with the District. One an applicant has been recommended for hire the applicant will be uploaded to be fingerprinted and an email will be sent with instructions on how to complete fingerprinting.
