Florida Private School Employees

FDLE Approved Live Scan Vendor

Teachers, non-instructional employees and volunteers at private schools in Florida are required by the Volunteer and Employee Criminal History System (VECHS) to get a fingerprint-based Level 2 Background Check.

Private schools participating in state scholarship programs have the responsibility to ensure that employees and contracted personnel meet the background screening standards under Section 1002.421, Florida Statutes (FS). For information on VECHS from the Florida Department of Education, visit: https://www.floridaschoolchoice.org/information/private_schools/vechs.asp

Through the VECHS program, FDLE and the FBI provide state and national criminal history record information on applicants, employees, and volunteers to qualified organizations, not individuals. To become a qualified VECHS user, the required application and user agreement can be found on FDLE website here:
