In January 2013, a new law was signed by Governor Patrick requiring certain school employees or volunteers of educational or internship programs that may have direct and unmonitored contact with children to undergo national criminal background checks. As a student teacher/nurse/intern your practicum placement is subject to the results of the finger-print based national criminal background check, a CORI application and the district's suitability determination concerning this assignment.

At this stage, you must register for a fingerprinting appointment at one of the enrollment centers. For directions to and hours of operation of the center located nearest you and to Register For an Appointment.You may also register by phone by calling 1 (866) 349-8130.

The district's 8 digit DESE organizational code is 01630000. Please use the code as the Provider ID during registration. You are allowed to notify up to 10 districts of the results of the finger-print based national criminal background check without incurring any additional costs.

You must bring your registration confirmation number with you to your fingerprinting appointment. Please schedule your appointment as soon as possible. You will not begin your assignment before an appointment is scheduled.
Fingerprints will not be taken without identification.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
