All new employees are required to complete a background check. This is done through a fingerprinting service.
During your on-boarding process you will be provided with fingerprinting information and protocols through a welcome email sent to you or through a document when you visit the office for your on-boarding process. This information will include an important code you will need when completing your registration process.
The fee for the fingerprinting process is $44.80. You will have the option to make this payment online at the time of registration or at your appointment.
If you are an educator, substitute teacher, or student teacher, your fingerprint information will be recorded automatically on your profile page in the online Educator Certification System through DESE. If you are a non-certified staff member or a bus driver/monitor, your results will be forwarded to the school district based upon the registration code you provided. Results of fingerprints are generally reported to the Educator Certification System within 2-3 weeks from the date of your appointment.
