Digital Finger Printing FAST Program certification

Since October 1,2003 new applicants for educator credentials have been required to submit fingerprints to SBEC so that a national background check can be conducted by the FBI.

On June 7, 2006 TEA authorized the implementation of Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST) to facilitate this requirement.

When an educator makes application to SBEC, he/she will be sent information regarding the FAST option along with a FAST pass that will allow the use of the DPS vendor (Identix) for fingerprinting purposes.

LISD strongly encourages applicants to the district to make use of the DPS vendor.
