As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure student safety, effective February 23, 2016, all volunteers will be required to complete a Child Abuse Background Check, Pennsylvania Criminal Background Check, FBI Fingerprinting Clearances (or PA Volunteer Residency Disclosure form). Anyone volunteering 10 hours or more a week must submit proof that they have satisfactorily passed a tuberculin test within the year prior to assignment. Forms, including instructions, are attached. Copies of the completed forms will be maintained in the District Administration Offices. This information is confidential. School Board Policy 916 defines a volunteer as “one who voluntarily offers a service to the school district without compensation and has direct contact with student(s).”
To begin the volunteer approval process, please download and print the Volunteer Handbook and Application. You may also pick up a copy at the Administration Office at 100 Canal Street or at any school office. Please see page 11 of the Volunteer Packet for information on obtaining the required clearances and you will need to complete the Volunteer Application.
