|1||University Supervisor||The University Supervisor creates an account on the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission’s (TSPC) eLicensing system beginning with the tutorial and directions at http://www.oregon.gov/tspc/Pages/elicensing.aspx|
|University Supervisor||The University Supervisor submits an application and payment through the eLicensing (https://apps.oregon.gov/TSPC/eLicense) system on the TSPC website for background clearance for student teaching or practicum.
License category in eLicensing = Clinical Practices
Cost = $55.00, plus $10 portal provider fee
ETA = TSPC will email codes and instructions within 5-7 days.
|TSPC||Important notice: The University Supervisor will receive an email from TSPC, which contains codes and instructions the applicant needs to proceed, within 5-7 days. TSPC emails instructions to the applicant for accessing Fieldprint. The email will consist of the following required information specific to the applicant::
Fieldprint Agency Code: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Billing Code: xxxxxx
OCA: Txxxxxxx (TSPC account ID)
|University Supervisor||After TSPC emails the required codes to the applicant: The applicant schedules a fingerprinting appointment through the Fieldprint website and pays the required fee (currently $12.50).|
|Fieldprint||After the fingerprinting process is complete, Fieldprint sends an image of the prints to the Oregon State Police (OSP) for processing through both the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Oregon State Police databases.|
|OSP||OSP forwards the results electronically to TSPC. This process is taking approximately two weeks, with some clearing faster and some taking longer.|
|TSPC||TSPC records the results as part of the application process. It is the applicant’s responsibility to monitor their record to determine when the background check results are complete.|
|2||University Supervisor||Background check results are available on TSPC’s Educator Lookup (http://www.tspc.oregon.gov/lookup_application/lookup_query.asp) website after about two weeks. All requested information (first name, middle initial, last name, birthdate and last 4 of the Social Security Number) must be entered to see the full details of the TSPC record, including clearance date and TSPC ID number. After the applicant’s background check has cleared, the date of clearance is displayed. You will need to make an electronic copy of the clearance screen to upload. TSPC may not send any notification that clearances have posted, so be sure to check back!|
