NEW NATIONAL CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK LAW
Governor Patrick recently signed into law “An Act Relative to Background Checks” requiring fingerprint-based national criminal history checks for all employees and certain other individuals working in public and private schools and child care facilities in Massachusetts. The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security and the Department of Criminal Justice Information Services are currently working with the Executive Office of Education, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and the Department of Early Education and Care to implement this law, including information on when and how required individuals will need to submit their fingerprints for these background checks.
Please continue to monitor this link for updates on the law and its implementation.

Important Information About CORI
The source of criminal history information contained in the iCORI database is the Office of the Commissioner of Probation (OCP), a subdivision of the Administrative Office of the Trial Court (AOTC). Accordingly, OCP is the only state agency that can change information that appears in the iCORI database. Further, only OCP can seal criminal convictions.
