To The Applicant:
The focus of the Brockton School Department is to provide instruction to suit the needs of its students. Our main objectives are to give college-bound students the greatest opportunities to meet the increasing competitiveness of college entrance and to prepare our non college-bound students to meet the demands of today's business world.

Of course, our educational programs are only as good as the caliber of the teachers employed to implement them. Consequently, the City of Brockton is interested in securing excellent teachers.

We are pleased that you have expressed an interest in the Brockton Public School Department.

The Brockton Public School System does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, age, sex, veteran's status, sexual orientation or disability in admission to, access to, treatment in or employment in its programs and activities, in accordance with M.G.L. c. 76, s.5.


In January 2013, Massachusetts enacted Chapter 459 of the Acts of 2012, “An Act Relative to Background Checks.” This new law expands what public, private, and parochial schools, including approved private special education schools and child care facilities, already do in conducting state Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) checks on all employees at least once every three years.

Fingerprint Registration Guide

Acceptable Forms of ID

The law requires a fingerprint-based state and national criminal record check for all school employees and contractor employees. All newly hired school employees, including educators, student teachers, maintenance staff, cafeteria workers, and bus drivers, who work in the schools and may have direct and unmonitored contact with children are now required to complete the new fingerprint-based state and national background check for the 2013-2014 school year. Volunteers at schools will continue to be required to submit to state CORI checks at least once every three years, as currently required by statute, but the decision to require the submission of fingerprints by volunteers for the fingerprint-based state and national checks will be made locally, by schools or districts.

For all current K-12 school employees and early educators, the law directs the Board of Early Education and Care and the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education to adopt regulations that phase in fingerprint-based state and national background checks prior to September 1, 2016. Unlike most state CORI checks that have no associated fee, individuals will pay a fee to comply with this requirement that ranges from $35 for non-licensed employees to $55 for individuals licensed under G.L. Chapter 71, Section 38G (licensed educators and specialists). The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS) has designed the system to meet this new national background check requirement.

NOTE: The Statewide Applicant Fingerprint Identification Services (SAFIS) program was launched on February 4, 2014. Newly hired employees for the 2013-14 school year, as well as applicants for licensure by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC), will schedule appointments to submit their fingerprints, pursuant to the new law. In the meantime, schools, programs, and providers will continue to run CORI (and, if required, DCF) checks on school employees and EEC licensees, as required under current state statutes.

♦ Please note: a form is available on the BPS HR web site which may be used for Verification of School Based Employment / Induction Mentoring. The form is available on the DESE web site, also.

♦ Please remember that your Individual Professional Development Plan does require a final endorsement from your supervisor. For most K-8 teachers, the endorsement will be done by the Principal. For high school teachers, the endorsement will be done by the Department Heads.

√ Once your new license has been issued to you, please forward a copy to the Human Resources Office.
