• Employment and Experience Verification Request
    Equifax | The Work Number 

    Effective 6/1/2016, the Atlanta Public Schools (APS) Human Resources Department will use The Work Number to provide verification for mortgage lenders, banks, apartment complexes, and others who may need proof of your employment or income. The service is easy to use and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, both online and by phone.

    APS’ Employer Code is 17322.

    If a verifier is specifically requesting a salary key from you as proof of consent, please click here for next steps.

    Note: Effective August 15, 2017,  security improvements will be implemented that will impact The Work Number application. As a result of this update, clients will no longer be able to use the Internet Explorer web browser on any PC running the Windows XP operating system to access these applications. Recent versions of Internet Explorer on operating systems newer than Windows XP will continue to operate.

    If you are requesting verification of Prior Years of Experience with Atlanta Public Schools or completion of a Student Loan Forgiveness Form submit your request via email to experienceverifications@atlanta.k12.ga.us.  Requests will be returned to the requestor within 3-5 business days.

    When submitting your Prior Years of Service or Student Loan Forgiveness Form to the experience verification email address (experienceverifications@atlanta.k12.ga.us), please provide the following:

    1. Attach the electronic form (verification or loan forgiveness) to your email.

    2. On the subject line of the email please include,

      • Your first name
      • Your last name
      • The last school, location or site you reported to work
    3. In the body of the email please include,


      • Approximate dates you were employed with APS
      • Your former last names, if applicable
      • Your employee identification number (Lawson number), if you have it
      • The last 4 digits of your social security number
      • An email address or mailing address to send the requested information
      • A contact phone number where we can reach you
      • Any additional information that may help us complete your request (additional instructions, email or mailing addresses, school or work site information, etc.)
    All experience verifications will provide information as of the date it is prepared.  If you are requesting an experience verification form before your last day of work at Atlanta Public School, please know that we will not provide a future end date based on your planned resignation.  Most school districts require an employment end date, and we will not be able to report your employment end date until that date has passed and you have officially separated.  If your employment separation date has not occurred, please wait until after your last day of employment to request your experience verification.

    NOTE: APS Charter Schools are separate entities and maintain their own employee records.  The Human Resources Department at Atlanta Public Schools is unable to provide any employment information for APS Charter Schools.  All current or former Charter School employees should contact the specific Charter School directly for any employee records or information.
