Fingerprint Background Check Information
You will be required to provide one of the North Adams Public Schools ESE Organization Codes. Please refer to the list below and select the appropriate code.
District-wide Employees 02090000
Colegrove Park Elementary School Employees 02090008
Greylock Elementary School Employees 02090015
Brayton Elementary School Employees 02090035
Drury High School Employees 02090505
Substitutes and student teachers may provide up to 10 district organization codes to eliminate the need to pay the fee multiple times.
Unlike state CORI checks that have no associated fee, individuals will have to pay a fee to comply with this requirement. The fee currently is $55 for school employees licensed under Section 38G (DESE-licensed individuals employed as educators and specialists, and any other employee who holds DESE licensure, regardless of her/his position) and $35 for all others.
Substitutes are school employees under the law and therefore must submit their fingerprints for state and national checks. Substitute teachers who hold educator licenses issued under MGL c. 71 § 38R, will pay the $55 fee; otherwise they will pay the $35.00 fee.
You will be provided with a fingerprint receipt. A copy of this receipt must be returned to Nancy Rauscher and will serve as confirmation that the fingerprints were captured as required by law.
