1 New Brunswick Public School District: Background Check and Fingerprinting Process Presenter: Enrique NogueraProgram Coordinator for Youth Development & EducationOffice of the Associate Vice President for Academic & Public Partnerships in the Arts & Humanities
2 Historical ContextThe superintendent of New Brunswick schools informed President McCormick that the increasing number of RU students (over 3,000 annually) serving in the school system became difficult to monitor.He also informed the President that it was equally challenging to communicate with different Rutgers units/programs sending students to serve in New Brunswick schools.The President asked Associate VP, Isabel Nazario, to meet with the superintendent and to identify, track, and develop new protocols for placing Rutgers students into New Brunswick schools.
3 History ContinuedTo address these issues while maintaining Rutgers student access to New Brunswick schools, RU faculty and staff came together to form a committee to advise the Associate VP’s Office on how best to develop a more cohesive and efficient internal approach for the coordination of New Brunswick school placements.Earlier this month, September 2010, I became the coordinator of this process.Since I have been with this project:My office decided against bringing MorphoTrak Mobiles to Rutgers because it would have been extremely expensive.We have designed a detailed process to get as many students as possible fingerprinted.We have designed an online space (wiki) for this information.
4 SummaryIn order for Rutgers students to begin serving in the New Brunswick School District, the superintendent must approve:The programs/ units sending RU students into NB schoolsThe number of students the programs/units intend to sendRutgers students on an individual basis to verify whether or not they have been background checked or fingerprintedOnce the aforementioned points have been approved, students will be cleared to serve in New Brunswick schools
