Contractor Approval Process

  • contractor approval chart

    Note: As of July 2019, adults with whom FCPS contracts who do not provide services for or work with students no longer have to go through the background checks. This mainly refers to contractors with the district departments such as plumbers, copy machine repair people, Pepsi delivery workers, etc. All other adults who work with or provide services to students still need to follow the previous process and register as a contractor (see steps below). If the person is a guest speaker or other volunteer whom FCPS staff has asked to come into the building, they should use the volunteer application.

    Background checks

    In accordance with state regulation KRS 160.380, in order to perform work at a school when students are present, any outside contractor and its employees and parents on SBDM councils must submit these three background checks for approval:

    • Kentucky State Police;
    • FBI; and
    • Cabinet for Health and Family Services child abuse and neglect (CAN) central registry report.

    Please follow these steps to apply to be an approved contractor with Fayette County Public Schools:

    1.  Register at https://dna.fcps.net/contractors. Outside contractors should select “Login as Guest.”

    2.  Submit background checks (state and federal) and CAN letter from CHFS that are less than 6 months old.

    • Where: FCPS Human Resources Office, 128 Walton Ave., Lexington KY 40502
    • When: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; no appointment necessary 

    If you do not have current documentation:  

    Bring the following to FCPS Human Resources to have your background checks completed:
