CLEARANCES NEEDED FOR VOLUNTEERING IN SCHOOL

Dear Trafford Families:

Dr. Harris recently sent out information to all families regarding the new clearance law and school district policy.  This affects Trafford families, if you ever plan on volunteering.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have regarding the new law and the Penn-Trafford School District policy. 

To clarify:  Any volunteer of any type (this would include all PTO events, activities, and functions) require clearances to participate.  This includes “one time events” such as Fun Day, Field trips, Book fairs, etc.   If you are attending school for a presentation, however, that does NOT require clearances.  This could include a school play, grade level activity, or invite from teachers to observe the students in school.

Regarding clearances needed:  Everyone is required to update the criminal record check and child abuse clearance every three years.  If you have lived out of the state of Pennsylvania in the last 10 years, a fingerprinting clearance is needed.  If not, only the previous two clearances are needed along with a signed affidavit. 

Thank you,

Mr. DiNapoli
Principal
