Clearances and Fees:
After a recommendation for employment is made, all candidates for classified employment are required to submit to fingerprint testing and drug screen. You will be required to pay for the service. The AVUHSD Personnel Office will submit the fingerprints to the California Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for analysis. The present rates are $49 for DOJ and FBI .
The Personnel Office technician will set an appointment with you to have your fingerprints recorded via "Livescan". This process requires prior authorization and proper forms. Do not proceed unless you have been directed to do so by the Personnel Office. All offers of employment are contingent upon successful clearance as required by California AND Federal law.

The technician will also arrange an appointment for the employment candidate to have a drug screen. You will be required to pay for this service. The present fee for the drug testing is $46. This also requires prior authorization and proper forms. Do not proceed until directed. Please note, we cannot accept drug screen results from home tests, other agencies or medical centers. The collection and testing must be done at the designated medical center at the date and time you are given by the Personnel Department Technician. Once at the designated center, you will be required to give a small amount of urine. Do NOT drink excessive amounts of water nor fluids prior to your drug test as diluted speciman results will not be accepted.     
All non-teaching classification types including, but not limited to, Paraprofessional, Aide, Custodian, Cafeteria, Maintenance, Groundskeeper and Security and substitutes must also submit to a complete pre-employment physical. At this time, the district will pay for this process through the contracted medical provider. Do not proceed until directed. Please note this is subject to change.
PLEASE NOTE, AVUHSD does not make any money nor profit from the clearance process fees you pay. The technician which handles your Livescan does NOT make any earnings nor credits of any sort from the clearance process. The technician that handles your fingerprints has already been specially cleared beforehand by the state of California’s Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to roll fingerprints via the Livescan computer.
AVUHSD does not keep the fees you pay. All monies you make payable to "AVUHSD" on the money order are then forwarded directly by district accountants to the state DOJ, FBI and/or medical agency for the clearances you are having performed. All fees are non-refundable regardless of clearance status as the fees you pay GO TO the state DOJ, FBI, and/or medical lab for drug testing. The rates listed are the fees as charged by the state DOJ, FBI or medical agency, and are subject to change. We can accept money orders only and the technician will advise you the correct amount to obtain on the money order at the time of processing. (For security purposes we do NOT accept cash, no personal checks, no private company checks, no atm/debit, no credit cards ). If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a Personnel Services Office technician. We look forward to speaking with you!
