Fingerprinting Requirements

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/ 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)
  • For “Applicant Employer Information” please confirm the screen as follows:


Employer Name: Ashburnham-Westminster Regional School District
Employer Phone: (978) 827-1434
Employer Address: 11 Oakmont Drive, Ashburnham MA  01430
Employer Contact: Dr. Todd Stewart
Title: Superintendent of Schools


The fee is $55 for staff who hold a DESE license and $35 without a DESE license.  You may pay with a credit card while registering online, or by check when arriving for your appointment. 


NOTE:  If you have previously obtained fingerprinting by another school district (within the past 7 years), please contact your previous district and ask them to complete this form HERE for your determination of suitability.  This form should be forwarded to Margaret Cooley at [email protected] or faxed to 978-827-5969.


Thank you for your cooperation in securing a timely appointment for the national criminal background check.  Your employment cannot begin until the results are received and reviewed by the district.  If you have any questions, please contact Stacey Christiano, Director of Human Resources at 978-827-1434 or [email protected].
