    Upon placement confirmation,
    you will need to complete the background check for Andover Elementary School at your earliest convenience. Check in with the Main Office to inquire about any newly required procedures. Otherwise, student teachers need to be fingerprinted at EASTCONN (unless they have proof of a background check from the university).

    2.       Once the cooperating teacher agrees to accept the placement, sign the confidentiality paperwork provided by your cooperating teacher (see attachment).

    3.       Bring a copy of the signed confidentiality paperwork to Central Office as verification that you’ve received placement within district.

    4.       At Central Office, request our university intern packet that explains the fingerprinting process necessary to work with Cromwell Public Schools’ students.

    5.       Follow each building’s entry protocol by entering through the main office, signing in, and receiving a visitor’s badge (if applicable, your cooperating teacher will advise).

    Please make sure the above steps are followed as Cromwell Public Schools strives to protect the safety and well-being of our students.

  • East Haddam Background Check Procedures: 

    Contact in the central office to begin your background check.

  • East Hampton Background Check Procedures: 

    We have attached a packet for student teacher’s to complete.  Also, we will provide a customized letter for the applicant to give to our Police to get fingerprints. Currently, we are not charging student teachers for those processing fees. 

    These documents will need to be completed prior to being placed in a school.  Also the student would go thru our “Raptor” driver licensing scan in the school’s office prior to first time admittance. 

     Thank You.

  • Manchester Background Check Procedures: 

    Eastern students placed in the Manchester school district have options for fingerprint/background check process as explained in this attached fingerprinting grid 

    To clarify the information found on the above attached grid, you have 2 options: 

    Option # 1: CREC/EASTCONN – student teachers (and other clinical candidates) have to make an appointment, and have a CHRI form signed by Manchester to go.  The only time a student will need a CHRI form is if they go to CREC/EASTCONN for fingerprinting. Student teachers fall under the Federal Statute AWA Volunteer on the CHRI form. Please complete the top, send to Manchester district facilitator, Heather Gates at for signature, and she will send it back to you once signed.  

    Option #2: Fingerprint Card - which can be done at either a biometrics ($25) location or the Police Barracks ($15) in Middletown. After they have the card, they need to bring the card, AND two separate money orders both made out to "Treasurer - State of CT" (the state does NOT accept personal checks) to our Central Office (45 North School St). The money orders should be for $11.25. Students who go this route do NOT need a CHRI form. 

    Questions regarding prints should NOT go to the Manchester HR Dept unless prints have been submitted already. If you still have question(s), you can email district facilitator, Heather Gates at 

  • All interns and student teachers for the Mansfield Public Schools are required to be fingerprinted through EASTCONN 30 days prior to starting your placement.
