    SAFIS Fingerprinting

 In September 2013, Governor Patrick signed into law Chapter 77 of the Acts of 2013, “An Act Relative to Background Checks.” This new law expands the Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) checks currently used in our schools. Specifically, it requires a fingerprint-based state and national criminal record check for all school employees. The State Applicant Fingerprint Identification System (SAFIS) MorphoTrust USA IndentoGo TM has been created for this purpose.

At this time, all new hires for the school year are instructed to go to the registration website to register for a fingerprinting appointment at one of the available enrollment centers. Employees, hired before July 1, 2013, will be subject to the fingerprinting checks on a phased-in schedule.

Do not list the individual school location. You must register under the Frontier Regional School District When completing the online registration, please enter the following information for the District as your employer:
