Safe Environment Training and CORI Requirements for Volunteers:
Bishop Feehan and the Fall River Diocese are committed to the protection of all of our students. Accordingly, all of our faculty and staff and all of our volunteers must complete Safe Environment training and a CORI (background check) before working or volunteering at Feehan.
For volunteers, the requirements are:
1. Complete all aspects of the Safe Environment Training from the diocese. This is now done completely online and includes watching a couple of videos and answering some questions. The link to complete this training is here: https://fallriver.cmgconnect.org/
a. This is a new system, all volunteers need to complete this training this year (2018-19). This Safe Environment Training will be good for six years once it is complete.
b. You only need to do this once for all Fall River Diocese entities, St. John the Evangelist (SJE), St. Mary-Sacred Heart (SMSH), or St Mary School (Mansfield) parents can do this once for both their schools or parishes.
c. You MUST
complete 51A Online Mandated Reporter Training in order to meet all diocesan requirements. The Safe Environment Training will direct you directly to the website.
3. Complete a CORI background check by printing and completing this form (download here
) and taking a photocopy of your current driver's license and submitting that via email firstname.lastname@example.org
*Please Note: Rhode Island residents need to download, fill out and submit electronically this additional form
, allowing us permission to request an out-of-state background check. This form MUST be notarized - please contact Lauren Cayer (email@example.com) to set up an appointment for notarizing.
Once all are submitted and the CORI process is finalized– you're all set! Your CORI status will be marked as "yes" in our One Feehan Volunteers software system, and then volunteer leaders will be able to reach out to you.
We know this is a bit of paperwork and time (thank you!), but we also know that the protection of our kids makes this worthwhile.
