Information about Security Clearances for Volunteers
If you handed in your Security Clearances last year to any of our schools in the Springfield School District, we would have this information in our system and it is good for five years. There is no need for you to give us another copy.
If you have any questions about this information that is needed you can click below to go directly to our SSD Website: SSDCougars.org > Parents > Security Clearances
Three clearances are needed to be a chaperone or volunteer:
- Affidavit if you lived in PA more than 10 years. The affidavit takes the place of getting your fingerprinting clearance. PA has waived the cost to do your fingerprinting if you lived in PA for more than 10 years.
