Volunteer Clearance Forms

The well-being and safety of all students are a top priority. Please be aware that parents or guardians who volunteer in the school and parents who volunteer to be a field trip chaperone must obtain a prior background check/clearance in advance.     This will be strictly enforced to comply with district policy and ensure the safety of the children.   We sincerely appreciate your understanding and compliance with this policy.

How to Obtain Background Clearances:

1.  Act 34 Criminal Background Check:   You may obtain this online at https://epatch.state.pa.us

     As of 7/25/2015, there is no fee for volunteers who apply for this clearance.

2 .  Act 151 Child Abuse History Clearance:   You may obtain this online at https://www.compass.state.pa.us/CWIS

     As of 7/25/2015, there is no fee for volunteers who apply for this clearance.

3.  FBI Clearance/Fingerprinting:   Application forms and instructions are available at http://www.pa.cogentid.com/index.htm

The cost of the fingerprint service is $27.  You must register prior to going to the fingerprinting  location. 

Please be aware that background/safety clearances may take four weeks or longer to obtain.  If you are interested in being a chaperone, please plan accordingly and obtain your paperwork early.   

NOTE:  Clearances will need to be renewed every 60 months (5 years).

Once you have obtained your clearances, volunteers must meet with the building principal to review the ORIGINAL copies of the requested documents. No copies will be accepted.
