For your private school to obtain background screening results for employees and contract agents, you must register with the Volunteer-Employee Criminal History System (VECHS) through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The application process for qualified organizations, including detailed instructions, fingerprints and links to the required user and application agreement, is available on the FDLE website at www.fdle.state.fl.us/Background-Checks/VECHS-Home.aspx. If you have any questions about the VECHS program, please contact the FDLE at (850) 410-VECHS (8324). Please note that the department immediately suspends the payment of scholarships to a participating private school that, knowing the account, does not meet these requirements. In some cases, Florida law also requires the department to prohibit the school from enrolling new scholarship holders for an exercise and until the school is respected.
