Volunteer Clearances - Parent Volunteer Letter
Law requires volunteers to complete clearances for the safety and well being of the children we serve. Below are links to the required clearance forms. The State Criminal Background and the Child Abuse clearances are free of charge.
The third clearance is an FBI Background Check, which is only required if you have not lived in the state of Pennsylvania for the past ten years. If you have lived in Pennsylvania for that time, you may print and sign the affidavit below avowing this as true.

Parent Volunteer Application
This document can be printed and submitted for review and filing by the school district to ensure that all volunteers information is available and that all clearances have been completed to align with the volunteer type. Once completed, volunteers will be invited in for a training to review responsibilities and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Volunteers will also be given this handbook with guidance regarding tasks and expectations.
