To begin this process, please send your name, email address, and the position you are applying for to Michelle Bright at brightm@franklinschools.org. If you have recently completed an expanded check with another school district, please have them send the results to Michelle Bright.  Once you send your contact information, you will receive an email containing a log in and password to complete your expanded criminal history check.   
  • Please submit a copy of your substitute teaching permit.  If you do not currently hold a substitute teaching permit, one may be obtained by registering with the Indiana Department of Education online system, LVIS. A tutorial is also available to guide you through this process.  Licenses issued under these guidelines will permit a substitute teacher to work for three calendar years.  Please note, FCS will not approve substitute teacher permits until an expanded criminal history check has been received.
