Every person who wishes to serve as a Texarkana Independent School District employee, volunteer, 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. Contractors who may have direct contact with students.

This process requires the individual to hold a state-issued driver’s license or state-issued ID card.

Effective July 1, 2017, all applicants will be responsible for any fees associated with being fingerprinted for any position within the District. Once an applicant has been recommended for hire, the applicant will receive an email with instructions on how to complete the fingerprinting process.
