Boston Public Schools Statement on Partner Access (March 16th):
On Tuesday, March 16, it was announced to school leaders that a limited number of partners are being allowed into BPS school buildings. Approved partners include mental health supports, physical health support through health clinics and therapy, and therapeutic services, such as ABA and ELA. Also included are student teachers, student nurses, and student social workers. If you offer one of these services and are interested in returning in person, please contact school leaders. There are fewer limitations on the type of Partners providing services outside of school buildings. This programming also requires the approval of the school leader, adherence to all registration requirements, and public health guidelines. Guidance will continue to be updated as decisions are made.

CORI information can be found in our Guide for School-Community Partnerships, inside the Guide you will find a link to the CORI Form, as well as instructions. Due to COVID-19 ID verification is no longer in person. When you submit your forms, please choose a school you have a relationship with. The staffer at the school who verifies CORI forms will contact you to confirm the information on the ID is correct, and the ID matches the person. This process may take between 7 to 10 days.

Review the Guide for School-Community Partnerships here Please make sure that your program information is up to date.
