NEW TEACHER RESOURCES AND INFORMATION PAGE

Welcome New Teachers! This page contains links and helpful resources as you maneuver through the process of getting fully certified to teach in Arizona. 

Below are links to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) where you will submit your Fingerprint Clearance Packet and to the Arizona Department of Education (ADE) where you will submit your documentation to obtain your teaching certificate. 

DPShttp://www.azdps.gov/

ADE: http://www.azed.gov/


Please note that the summer months are the busiest for both of these departments so please allow for 8-12 weeks for the entire process to be completed (applying for a fingerprint clearance card to receiving your teaching certificate). 

Please don't hesitate to contact our HR office if you have any questions.
