SUBSTITUTES--ALL SCHOOLS


Lunenburg, Massachusetts

Job ID: 2695068 Application Deadline: June 30, 2017
Posted: August 1, 2016 Starting Date: Immediately

Job Description
Thank you for considering serving as a substitute in the Lunenburg Public Schools--our administrative team strives to maintain a substitute pool of dedicated individuals. In order to reduce paper consumption LPS only accepts applications processed through SchoolSpring. While applicants with post-high school degrees are preferred, post-high school degrees are not required for per diem substitute assignments. Please indicate in your cover letter if you also would be willing to serve as a substitute paraprofessional and/or secretary.

The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act mandates that schools conduct Criminal Offense Record Information (CORI) checks on all persons who have contact with students including substitutes. In order for the District to perform CORI checks applicants must complete/sign a CORI Request Form--these forms are available on the District website, in each of our school offices, and in the Office of the Superintendent. CORI Request Forms must be returned in person to one of the school offices listed below (applicants submitting completed CORI Request Forms will be asked to present a government-issued photo identification along with the form). Placement on the substitute list is subject to receipt of satisfactory CORI and SAFIS reports.

NEW REQUIREMENT. In January 2013, Chapter 77 of the Acts of 2013, “An Act Relative to Background Checks" expanded the current Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) system by requiring fingerprint-based state and national criminal record checks via the State Applicant Fingerprint Identification System (SAFIS) on all school employees including substitutes, coaches (not otherwise employed by the District), and school transportation providers. The cost for fingerprinting is $55.00 for individuals licensed by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and $35.00 for all non-licensed individuals. Please find the SAFIS registration process below.

Again, thank you for considering service in the Lunenburg Public Schools.

Job Requirements
Lunenburg Public Schools
State Applicant Fingerprint Identification System (SAFIS)

The SAFIS process involves three steps:

1. Registering/making an appointment with the vendor and paying the fingerprinting fee.

Employees may register/make an appointment online https://ma.ibtfingerprint.com or by telephone (866.349.8130). The registration requires detailed information so a review of the SAFIS Registration Guide is recommended especially if registering by telephone.

During the registration process employees will need to supply the school district’s Provider ID (aka ORG Code) and the District’s Primary Contact. Substitutes and coaches should use the District Code (01620000).

Employees who work in more than one school district (i.e. substitute teachers, coaches, transportation providers) should have the provider ID numbers on hand for the other school districts in which they work at the time of registration, as up to ten (10) districts may be listed per registration fee thus avoiding additional registrations along with additional fees.

Vendor locations are provided at the beginning of the registration process.

2. Visiting the vendor at the appointed location, on the date/time scheduled, and undergoing the actual fingerprinting.

3. Submitting a copy of the MorphoTrust USA IdentoGo receipt to the Lunenburg Public Schools, Office of the Superintendent, as the receipt will serve as confirmation that the fingerprinting has been done.
