Beginning with the fall of 2012, the Professional Education Unit requires all students to register with the Family Care Safety Registry (FCSR) during their first practicum course for a one-time fee of $11. The Teacher Education Student Services (TESS) Office will run current background checks through the FCSR when students enroll in teacher education entry level courses (Observation & Activity 62-211 and Middle & Secondary Teaching Practicum I 61-260 & 262 and Observation & Activity in PE 22-260), upon admission to the Professional Education Program, and in upper level Professional Education Practica Courses. Students must provide verification of their FCSR registration to the TESS Office in Administration Building 348 during their 1st week of enrollment in 62-211, 61-260, 61-262, and 22-260.
The Family Care Safety Registry conducts a search using name, date of birth, and/or Social Security number against the records maintained by the following Missouri state agencies:
A person may either register online with the FCSR or by mail. Online registration is quick and easy and all an individual will need is internet access, his/her Social Security number, and a valid credit or debit card for payment of the fee. The one-time fee to register online is $11.00 plus a $1.00 processing fee. Please note that effective March 1, 2015, the registration fee will increase to $12.00 plus a $1.00 processing fee. The fee increase results from a change in state law and is required by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
If you choose to mail in your registration, you need to complete the worker registration form which can be found at the following address: http://health.mo.gov/safety/fcsr/forms.php. Mail a copy of the worker registration form along with a photocopy of your Social Security card and a check or money order for the $10.00 registration fee to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, Fee Receipts Unit, P.O. Box 570, Jefferson City, MO 65102. Mailed forms are processed in the order received.
