    The California State Education Code requires that all school employees be fingerprinted and provide a negative PPD (Mantoux type) Skin Test. 

     

    Fingerprinting:

    Prior to employment, all applicants are subject to a fingerprinting clearance through the Department of Justice (DOJ).  This clearance requires a fee payable in cash to the Lancaster School District.  Authorization of employment will not be granted until the fingerprint clearance from DOJ has been accepted.  This process takes approximately five to seven days.

     

    TB Testing:

    The new hire is responsible for applicable fees. Physical exam may be required.

     

    Certificates:

    Any required certificates (First Aid/CPR, typing, etc.) will be noted on the job posting and must be submitted at time of application. Some positions may require a valid California Driver's License.
