Create a New York State TEACH Account or verify that you already have a New York State TEACH account. Please do not create another TEACH account if you already have one. Once you have successfully created an account, click on “Account Information,” “Fingerprinting,” and GO. Once you hit go you will either see that your prints have been received by New York State or that your prints are not on file.
If your fingerprints are not on file with New York State, you will need to be fingerprinted by the NYC Department of Education. Schedule a fingerprinting appointment with the fingerprinting vendor IdentoGO using the NYC DOE Service Code, which can be found in the "Finger Printing Instruction Sheet" in Applicant Gateway.
