Criminal History Record Check Renewal

Every five years a criminal history record check renewal will be conducted on individuals who have not been continuously employed* and properly credentialed in a Maine school system over the last five years. The Department will conduct the background check using your fingerprints already on file.

If you have not been continuously employed and properly credentialed over the last five years in a Maine school system, you need to submit a fee of $24 for the criminal history record check renewal. Please submit a money order, bank check or credit card information for the $24 made payable to “Treasurer, State of Maine.” This is in addition to the renewal fee above.

*If all or part of the continuous employment is in a private school, please submit a verification letter from the headmaster. In an adult education program, submit a verification letter from the adult education director. Continuous employment does not generally include coaching and substitute teaching.
