Prior to coming down to 65 Court street for fingerprinting, you must have:
- received your Applicant Gateway email nominating you as a Partner Teacher
- filled out the OSPRA 104 form and
- Set up your New York State TEACH account.
- Email the HR Connect Service Center at HRCServiceCenter@schools.nyc.gov after completing all forms in Applicant Gateway, to schedule an appointment for fingerprinting. Please note that you should not contact the Service Center until you have completed your online forms, and fingerprinting is by appointment only—you will be turned away if you go to the Service Center without an appointment.
Note: We recommend getting fingerprinted as soon as possible as fingerprinting and your background check can take up to two months to process.
