Accurate Biometrics is the contracted vendor for Chicago Public Schools (CPS) for state and FBI fingerprint-based background checks. Chicago Public School fingerprint applicants will need to obtain a valid “signed” fingerprint authorization form for fingerprinting from your HR representative of the Chicago Public School system, or as directed by your school. No applicant can be fingerprinted for CPS unless they present a current CPS fingerprint form at an Accurate Biometrics location at time of fingerprinting.
CPS Vendor Note: CPS Vendors must receive email approval from the CPS Background Check Team before starting the fingerprint process.
