Suitability Determination Request


Under Massachusetts law, ALL school-related personnel with the potential for unsupervised contact with children as well as subcontractors/laborers commissioned by schools to perform work on school grounds, individuals who regularly provide school-related transportation to children, and anyone providing child care or support services, are subject to fingerprint-based state and national background checks as a condition of employment. Unlike CORI, this check will examine criminal activity in all states, not just Massachusetts.
 
School volunteers are not required to submit their fingerprints for the national check (unless chaperoning an overnight field trip) but they must continue to submit to state CORI background checks.
