Cori Forms:
If you are planning to volunteer or chaperone during this school year (and we hope you will), you must be CORI’d. You can do this by visiting the Superintendent’s office to fill out a CORI (Criminal Offender Records Information) form.  You will also need to bring a government-issued photo ID (a license will do). The Superintendent’s Office is located in the business office at the Burlington High School, 123 Cambridge Street. The entrance is around the back of the school. CORI approvals are good for three years, so if you filled out a CORI during the last two years, it is not necessary to submit a form again for this year. If you are unsure of when your last CORI was done, please call the school office and Mrs. Bogosh or Mrs. Shaikh will be happy to help.
