Boston Public Schools Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) Policy
In accordance with the BPS Superintendent Circular on visitors in schools, all classroom volunteers who routinely visit the building, must undergo a CORI check before receiving permission to volunteer in the school
- CORI checks take approximately one week, therefore the appropriate paperwork must be submitted to the Kilmer at least two weeks before the volunteering event.
- Both Kilmer front offices and all Kilmer teachers have access to the form the volunteer must complete.
- It would be ideal if any parent who may volunteer throughout the year, to send in their CORI form in September. This would allow parents access to visit if the opportunity arises.
PLEASE NOTE: The CORI forms are available in the schools’ main offices. When you come to the school to fill the CORI form, please make sure to bring a current driver's license. A copy of a valid drivers license is required for the approval process.
