INFORMATIONAL LETTER NO.   1

POLICY CODE:   GCF/GDF

 

TO:                   Superintendents of Schools

FROM:             Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner of Education

DATE:              July 8, 2005

RE:                   Fingerprinting Schedules to Resume

            On July 1, 2005 a message was posted on the Department of Education fingerprint registration website announcing the temporary postponement of fingerprint registration due to a lack of funding.   Individuals who were already registered to be fingerprinted as of July 1, 2005 have received letters concerning this postponement from the Department of Public Safety.

            I am pleased to announce that we have resolved the funding issue and fingerprint registration will resume shortly.   The next fingerprint details will take place in Winslow on July 23 and in Machias on July 30, as originally scheduled.   The fingerprint website will contain all of the date and site information for future fingerprint details.  

            Those individuals who were originally scheduled to be fingerprinted at the July 9 details in Westbrook and Orono and the July 16 detail in Presque Isle will need to re-register on the website, which can be accessed at : http://www.informe.org/cgi-bin/doe/fingerprint.pl     We anticipate that the fingerprinting details scheduled for July and August will be sufficient to accommodate all individuals who need to complete the process prior to the start of the 2005-06 school year.

            If you have any questions, please contact the Certification Division at 624-6603.
