Does anyone know if you teach in the USVI if you have to be fingerprinted, like you do in the states? I feel it is a violation of my civil rights.

If you are worried about civil rights, then maybe you are moving to the wrong place.

The pay for teachers is so low here, they'll take anyone with a pulse.

Application requirements are here: http://teachusvi.net/

Can't imagine where you are teaching now (if you are) that they don't do fingerprinting and/or background checks.

vicanuck, actually the pay scale there is very close to ours here in FL. Personally, of course I wish I made more money, but I like to remember I get paid for a 9 1/2 month year.

When I went in and was talking with dept of ed here the guy told me they require a background check from the state you came from, and I believe you do have to get fingerprinted. And checking your criminal background before working a teaching job is done simply to protect children from potentially dangerous people, many jobs throughout all the states require this type of in-depth background check.

Not even close to true ---- I have been a credentialed high school math and chemistry teacher for the last 8 years, and when I went into department of ed they basically told me I had to get completely re-certified out here (not a simple process) -- I'm going to take my pulse filled self and just go bartend.

So why do they have to hire teachers from the Philippines? If the pay was so good, Americans would be lining up for the positions. Just asking...

What about getting a driver's license? You have to give a thumb print for that too. New to me. We didn't have to give prints in MI for driving privileges. I have to humbly disagree that it is a violation of your civil rights since many careers do not have this requirement and the safety of children should be paramount.

Sorry to resurrect this thread but does anyone know where one can get the FD-258 fingerprint card done here on St. Croix?

Years ago when I had to get prints done for my NSA background check I just went to the local police station. I would assume there are going to be tons of questions asked but I would guess that the local police dept could do it....
