 **  The State of Pennsylvania is waiving the fee for both the Criminal Background Check and Child Abuse Clearance for volunteers. Free clearances can be obtained once every 5 years. When completing your applications online, be sure to choose the Volunteer option if you want the free copy.  Note, these free clearances are for volunteering purposes only, they will not be acceptable for employment requirements.

Effective July 1, 2015:  Per State Act 153, all registered volunteers will need to update their clearances every 5 years.  If your current clearances on file with the District are more than 5 years old at any point of the school year, you will need to update your Criminal Background check and your Child Abuse clearance before you can be re-approved for next year.  In addition, if you have lived in Pennsylvania less than 10 years, you are required to submit an FBI clearance as well. If you already have a TB test on file with the District, it will NOT need to be updated. 

Completed forms can be turned in to your child's school, dropped off or mailed to:
