New Hire Process

All new hire employees, including certificated or classified, Permanent, Temporary, Probationary, Substitutes, Supplemental Services employees, and Extra Pay Contract employees (e.g., Coaches) must be fingerprinted upon an offer of employment. 

Note: No new hire may begin employment until FUSD has received clearance by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and FUSD Human Resources has notified the New Hire that he/she is approved to start work! This includes all classifications of employees. 

All new hires must pay for their own fingerprint costs at the time that they are fingerprinted.

Payment must be in the form of a money order or cashier’s check made payable to Fresno Unified School District. Cash, personal or business checks will not be accepted.


The fingerprinting fee varies depending on the position being hired for. The fees are as follows:

$50.00 – FUSD Volunteers
$68.00 – FUSD Employees/Coaches/Charter Employees/Volunteers/Vendors

All fingerprint applicants must be cleared by Human Resources before volunteering or reporting to work.

Note: If a substitute employee is hired into a permanent position (classified or certificated) and has already been fingerprinted through the FUSD process, they do not need to be reprinted. However, a record must exist in our system confirming that they have been printed. If no record can be found, the individual should be printed at their own expense as any other new hire. If no record of clearance is found, the individual will be removed from their current assignment.
