• SUBSTITUTE TEACHER HIRING/FINGERPRINTING PROCEDURE

    We are also required by the Michigan State Police to have a copy of a Criminal Background Check on file for every substitute teacher working in our district.  Please refer to the Fingerprinting Procedure listed below.

    All prospective
    substitute teachers of Grass Lake Community Schools are required to have scans of their fingerprints on file with the State of Michigan, from which criminal record checks are completed. These scans are $50 cash, payable at the time of the scan, and the cost is not reimbursable. 

    To arrange for an appointment for fingerprinting, call the Jackson County Intermediate School District (JCISD) at 768-5209 and inform them that you need fingerprinting as a prospective employee of Grass Lake Community Schools.
