As the school year draws to a close, excitement fills the air with anticipation for end-of-the-year activities and the special 8th grade recognition ceremony.

Information about Security Clearances for Volunteers

BACKGROUND CHECKS, CLEARANCES AND DISCLOSURES

All volunteers who are responsible for the welfare of children must have obtained all security clearances prior to service. These volunteers are persons who will chaperone a field trip or volunteer at certain building events as determined by administration. Necessary clearances include: Child Abuse Clearance, Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Background Check and FBI Clearance (waivers for the FBI check are available for persons who have been residents of Pennsylvania for ten years or longer). All clearances are available electronically via the following links:

FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (FBI) FINGERPRINT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK INSTRUCTIONS: Applicants must register for fingerprints online at: https://www.identogo.com/  (select Digital Fingerprints) 

Service Code for EMPLOYEES only: 1kg6xn -  $25.25

*cost is subject to change by the state

Upon completion, please be sure to print out confirmation / receipt; clearances should be submitted by the volunteer to the main office of your students’ school building(s). The FBI Waiver Affidavit must be presented in person by the volunteer and witnessed by the main office.

Fees for volunteers applying for clearances have been waived by the state, with the exception of the FBI background check, which costs. Submitted clearances must be renewed every 60 months. Certifications are portable as long as they are current; if you currently have clearances less than 5 years old, they are valid and may be submitted to your students’ building(s).

Should you have any questions, please contact your building principal.
