SAFE ENVIRONMENT CLEARANCES

To all teachers, coaches, school and parish employees/volunteers: The Office for Child and Office of  Child and Youth Protection feels very strongly that through a solid partnership between parents/guardians and schools we can successfully create a network of protection around your children.  We accomplish this, in part, through our Safe Environment Program. 

All volunteers are required to have a Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Clearance on file,  attend a safe environment class and complete the online Mandated Reporter Training.

 

LINKS BELOW FOR CLEARANCES:

 

the Pennsylvania Criminal Background Check and Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance are now free for volunteers!  For the Pennsylvania Criminal Background Check there is now a yellow button on the main page that says “New Record Check” with the words “volunteers only” in red to the right, clicking there allows for volunteers to run their check free of charge. Please note that if you have staff that both work and volunteer they have to obtain the paid employment clearance. The fee waiver is for volunteering only. For the Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance, when completing online via the Compass site, as long as the individual has identified him/herself as a volunteer when they begin the application, the fee will be waived. For the Federal Fingerprint Check the fee remains unchanged.  These clearances must be updated every 5 years.
