Fingerprinting and CORI Information

The State fingerprinting law expands on what we as public schools already do with Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) checks.  Specifically, it requires a fingerprint-based state and national criminal record check for all school employees and school volunteers. The State Applicant Fingerprint Identification System (SAFIS) Morpho Trust USA IdentoGo has been created for this purpose.  There are several locations throughout the state.  See here for more information:
