The State Bureau of Identification (SBI) is pleased to announce that through the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, Delaware Private Schools now have the ability to obtain a State and Federal background check through SBI, effective May 1st, 2017.  Schools must be registered with SBI prior to any employee being processed.  To register your school, please visit our website at:, and complete the required form.

The background checks will be issued directly to the school’s point of contact and will take substantially less time to complete then the current process of mailing fingerprints to the FBI directly. The cost of the background check is $65.00. For further information on our fingerprinting locations and processing hours, please visit our website at
