Thank you for your interest in working or volunteering for the Ashburnham-Westminster Regional School District!
Massachusetts law now requires all public schools’ employees to have a one-time national criminal background fingerprint check. Unlike the CORI check, this check will examine criminal activity in all states, including Massachusetts.
You are required to submit your fingerprints for the national criminal background check. The fingerprint process requires two steps. The first step is to register online for an appointment to have your fingerprints taken. The second steop requires you to go to a location to physically have your fingerprints taken.
As soon as possible, please visit https://ma/.ibtfingerprint.com/ to register and schedule an appointment to have your fingerprints taken. You may also call (866) 349-8130 for an appointment.
- When asked to select agency/sector, choose “Pre-K-12” Grade Education (ESE)” and confirm.
- Then, select whether you are a “licensed educator” or “all other personnel” in the dropdown.
- For “Provider ID” please use the following code: 06100000 (failure to do so will result in AWRSD not receiving your fingerprints)
