All teacher candidates must submit an Illinois State Police fingerprint Criminal Background Check (CBC) to the Teacher Education Center before beginning any clinical experience. A CBC protects preK-12 students by verifying the teacher candidate has not been convicted of illegal activity.
You may complete your CBC fingerprint scan at any Livescan vendor site in Illinois, including the vendors below.
