Background Check Information
Satisfactory, background checks are required for all candidates offered a position, before they are considered a Santa Fe Public Schools employee. As part of the new hire process, it will be necessary to complete a background clearance through the New Mexico Department of Public Safety and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

If you have had your fingerprints processed or if you have had your background check conducted by the New Mexico Public Education Department within the last two years, you need to sign a release form for that report to be released to SFPS.

The Recruiting Department will contact candidates who have been offered a position to pick up the fingerprint cards. The cost for fingerprinting processing must be paid at the time the cards are picked up by a $43.00 money order/cashier’s check made out to Santa Fe Public Schools.  Candidates have their finger prints completed for an additional cost of $9.00 at the State Police Department. After the finger prints are completed, the candidate brings the print cards back to the Recruiting Department so they can be processed.

If there is a discrepancy with a background check, it will be reviewed by the Human Resources Director or the Assistant Human Resources Director.
