What happens if my fingerprints show a criminal charge or arrest?

The TEA Division of Educator Investigations will review all fingerprinting results and results that an individual reports on his or her application for a Texas educator certificate or permit. That office may contact you to obtain information necessary to make a determination of eligibility for a Texas educator credential. Issuance of the credential will be determined by the results of this review.
