The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, in order to protect
children, requires that school officials obtain criminal background information
to determine the suitability of current and prospective employees. This
information is obtained through two sources: the CORI (Criminal Offender
Record Information) system, which stores information on Massachusetts
criminal history; and the SAFIS (Statewide Applicant Fingerprint Identification
Services) program, which conducts fingerprint-based background checks
through the FBI’s national criminal history database.
As a new employee
of the Braintree Public Schools, you will be asked to consent to a CORI
check, which will be repeated every three years. More information here
