Fingerprinting - As a new hire, if you have not lived in Kansas for the past 10 years consecutively, you will need to be fingerprinted. Those who are newly Kansas licensed (2011) candidates are exempt. A sign up for fingerprinting will be available at your new hire meeting.
Physicals - Lawrence Public Schools requires all of our district employees to have a physical/TB test on file within 30 days of your employment. We require this phyiscal to be done through our contracted services at LMH Business Health Office. The district pays for your physical exam and TB test so there is no cost to you. Physical Exams that have been done recently with your primary physician will not fulfill the district's requirements for a medical exam. If you have had a recent TB test (within the last year) you are welcome to take a copy of the results to the exam for their review.
Email/Phone - You will be given a sheet with your email/phone and other important information at your new hire meeting.
Mandatory Training - You will view this training video at the new hire paperwork that you attend.
New Staff Induction - Begins on August 2 (8am-4pm) at Lawrence High School (1901Louisiana Street, Lawrence, KS 66046)
