The fingerprint based background check is a two-step process including online registration and fingerprinting taken digitally at a registered site. For more information and to begin the registration process, go to https://www.pa.cogentid.com/index_pdeNew.htm. Please be sure to choose the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) when registering.

Once you have registered, proceed to an approved fingerprinting site to be digitally fingerprinted. A list of approved locations is available on the Cogent website. Please note that the UPS Store in Wynnewood is a drop-in site for fingerprints (no appointment required). Your Registration Number starting with "PAE..." must be provided to the District so your results can be retrieved.
