For the protection of pupils in educational settings from abuse and maltreatment, NYS law requires the fingerprinting of prospective employees of school districts, charter schools and boards of cooperative educational services. This includes sports officials.
To schedule an appointment to get fingerprinted go to www.identogo.com, and click on New York State on the map.
You will be asked for an ORI number. The ORI number for the New York State Education Department (NYSED) is: TEACH. If you asked for a program, choose "Employee." Other choices such as "Certification" do not apply to us. Further guidance is available from NYSED.
[If you have any questions you can call IdentiGo at: (877) 472-6915]
The cost of fingerprinting is $99.70 You can pay online with a credit card, or by cash or check on-site at the time of your appointment.
There are numerous locations available to get fingerprinted in the New York City/Westchester/Putnam/Rockland area. These locations can be found on the IdentiGo website. [After clicking NYS on the map, click on "Locations"]
You must have two forms of identification when you go to have your prints taken. At least one must contain a photo.
The sooner you get this done, the sooner you will be listed as an active official and receive assignments for the fall season.
If you have additional questions contact the Association President.
