Thanks for your cooperation as we transition to this new process.​


This web site was designed to assist you as a contracted vendor and Volusia County Schools regarding complying with the Jessica Lunsford Act, which was implemented in September, 2005.

The Jessica Lunsford Act requires all contracted vendors who are permitted access on school grounds when students are present, who have direct contact with students, or have access to or control of school funds, to undergo a background check and meet Level 2 screening requirements pursuant to Florida State Statute 1012.32. Effective July 2007, the law was amended providing for a few exceptions to these requirements. Additional changes were implemented, July 1, 2013, allowing for a statewide badge to be accepted by all Counties. The legislation also now mandates that all Vendor/Employees provide a copy of their I-9 as a part of their eligibility for clearance. Effective January 1, 2021, the rate for a new Vendor Badge and Fingerprinting will be $85.00.
