Jessica Lunsford Act Compliance
Dear Contractors and Vendors:
On February 3, 2014, the District posted a letter on this website and sent an email notification to all contractors and vendors required to be cleared through the Jessica Lunsford Act, of changes that would be put into place by the end of March 2014.
This letter is the updated information, as we have a definite date when the conversion and changes to the method of payment accepted by the School District will take place. Effective March 21, 2014, all contractors and vendors who have not completed the fingerprinting process will be required to pay for fingerprinting. All payments prepaid through Cogent will no longer be accepted after March 20, 2014 and all refund requests must go directly through Cogent and your credit card provider.
The District will accept one money order, credit or debit card payment for the total amount of the Jessica Lunsford Act process -$93.00. This amount includes State and District badges. A $4.95 bank /convenience fee will be added to all credit/debit card transactions.
Badge Fees: State Replacement Badge - $10.00, HCPS County Badge - $8.00. Request for HCPS County Badge Form
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make this necessary transition. In an effort to assist you, please feel free to contact the Jessica Lunsford Act office at 840-7178.
Thank you again for your continued support.
