• Level II Background Screening for Vendors and Contractors

    Below are the procedures established by the Monroe County School Board regarding compliance with the Jessica Lunsford Act and to assist you in applying for Level II background screening.  If you have any questions please contact the Human Resources office at 305-293-1400 ext 53330 or email Ayesha.Osborne@KeysSchools.com for assistance.
    1. Please visit pats.monroe.k12.fl.us/CATS/vcn.nsf to register as a user and then submit your application online (this is a secure web site).  Applications must be completed online and in full before being scheduled for fingerprinting.  Please check “Your To Do List” to insure that all sections have been completed.

    2. If you are not able to attach the required documents you must bring them when you present yourself for processing.  You will be asked to present your picture ID for verification when you arrive and a copy of your Social Security card is mandatory component of the process.

    3. Please call the Human Resources office to schedule fingerprinting for an individual or small group.  The approximate time for each person is 15 minutes.  Appointments will be available periodically in the Upper Keys, also by appointment.

    4. An authorized representative from the company/organization must complete the Sworn Statement and return it with the first applicant from your company.

    5. The cost of processing is $78.50 for each applicant.  This may be paid in the form of cash, credit card, or money order.  The district will not be providing a billing service. You may also pay for fingerprints at www.flprints.com and bring the receipt in when you come to process.

    6. The renewal cycle is 5 years.  If an applicant is arrested during this time they will be reviewed again and may loose access privileges to the district facilities/grounds.

    7. Pictures for ID Badges will be taken.  ID Badges will not be distributed until the background check has been received and reviewed by staff.  ID Badges can be picked up at a later time/date, given to the school or department contact the applicant listed on the application, or special arrangements can be made.
    ID Badges must be worn when on district premises and all applicants still need to check in through the front office at each school when on campus.

    Replacement ID Badges will cost $5.00.

    It is the vendor’s responsibility to return badges to the Monroe County School Board when an applicant terminates employment with their agency or upon request of the Monroe County School Board.
