Connecticut law requires local school systems to have all new employees, including substitute teachers, fingerprinted for state and national criminal history checks.

You will need to provide one completed referral form from each Connecticut State Police Criminal History Record Information (CHRI) approved BOE, Charter or Private School and payment for each school.  EASTCONN will fingerprint you and submit your prints to the Connecticut State Police for processing.  Results are then sent directly to each school.

No. By working at least one day, you are considered a continuous employee for that district unless otherwise required by the school district.

If processed by EASTCONN, your results are sent by the Connecticut State Police directly to your school.  It may take up to 3 months to receive your results.
