Fingerprinting Site Opens in Everett

To comply with An Act Relative to Background Checks (H. 4307), all educators in Massachusetts will need to be fingerprinted by the state’s approved vendor.  For educators who hold a DESE License there is a $55 fee.  For paraprofessionals and others without a teaching license it is capped at $35.

There are five approved locations in the state, and newest one is in Everett. The RTA was investigating the ability to bring a mobile fingerprinting unit to the city, but this no longer seems worth the logistical complications with a site much closer by.  The new location is:

Alliance Detective Agency
930 Broadway
Everett, MA 02149

The RTA urges all members to schedule an appointment as soon as possible by going to:  https://ma.ibtfingerprint.com/

The Provider ID for Revere is: 02480000

 

The executive office of education has posted a Frequently Asked Questions Page about Fingerprint Background Checks.  A Summary of the Law is available through the MTA website.
