Applications are accepted online. The following items must be brought to the appointment:

  • Bachelor degree or transcripts
  • Teacher's Certificate
  • Two forms of ID (Driver License, Social Security card, birth certificate, or passport)
  • A certified bank check or money order in the amount of $13.25 payable to Danbury Public Schools (DPS) if you have been fingerprinted at the Danbury Police Department and DPS will be processing your fingerprints.

The State of Connecticut requires that any person hired by a local or regional board of education (teacher, administrator, special service staff member, teacher's aide, substitute teacher, custodian, cafeteria employee, etc.) submit to a state and national criminal history record check within the first 30 days of the date of employment.

The process includes the checking of fingerprints by the State Police Bureau of Identification and the F.B.I. The results of the criminal history record checks (both state and federal) are reported to the employing school district. If the district receives notice of a conviction of a crime by a person holding a certificate, authorization or permit issued by the State Board of Education, the district shall notify the Bureau Educator Standards and Certification.

New hires may complete the fingerprinting process at Danbury Police Department or through EdAdvance in Danbury, Connecticut.
