Volunteer Information
Image result for volunteer Dear Parent / Guardian,
The well-being and safety of all students are a top priority at Keystone Elementary School. 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 both district policy and state law to ensure the safety of our students. We sincerely appreciate you understanding and compliance with this policy.

ACT 151 CHILD ABUSE CLEARANCE:  As of 7/25/2015, there is no fee for volunteers who apply for this clearance. You may obtain this online at https://www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis/public/home

ACT 34 CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK As of 7/25/2015, there is no fee for volunteers who apply for this clearance. You may obtain this online at https://epatch.state.pa.us

FBI CLEARANCE / FINGERPRINTING Cost of Fingerprinting is $27.00 as of the distribution of this letter. You may obtain this by registering online at https://www.pa.cogentid.com/index.htm. You must obtain an ID number through this site before reporting to a fingerprinting location which is listed on this site. Please choose Department of Education when registering.

Please note that there can be a delay of several weeks from start to finish for some of the clearances. Starting this process early will ensure that everything is in place in time for the trip or activity you wish to volunteer for.

Once you have obtained your clearances, volunteers must meet with the 
Human Resources at the District Office to review the original copies of the documents before copies will be made and final approvals given. At this time, a badge will be given to the volunteer.
NOTE: Clearances will need to be renewed every 60 months (5 years). 

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding!

Melanie Gehrens, Ed.D.
