Per recent changes to Act 153 of 2014, all paid employees, volunteer coaches and volunteer chaperones will need to renew their clearances on a 5-YEAR cycle. The clearances required are: Act 34 PA State Police Criminal Clearance, Act 151 PA Child Abuse Clearance, and Act 114 FBI Fingerprint clearance (or PA Residency Waiver for chaperones ONLY who have lived in PA for the past ten consecutive years).
December 31, 2015 is the deadline for all PAID employees to supply renewed clearances. July 1, 2015 was the deadline for all VOLUNTEER chaperones and coaches. Even though the State extended the volunteer deadline for existing volunteers, ALL Reynolds SD volunteers must comply with the 7/1/2015 deadline due to the current filing requirements for all three clearances.
After July 25, 2015, Volunteers will be able to obtain FREE Act 34 and Act 151 clearances; however, the volunteer clearances will NOT be able to be used for employment purposes. They are for volunteer purposes ONLY. Also after July 25, 2015, the cost for Act 34 and Act 151 clearances for employment purposes will be reduced from $10 to $8.
If you have any questions or concerns about your clearance status, please feel free to contact Mrs. Sue Combine at 724-646-5521 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org . Clearance forms are available on the district website under the Employment tab - Employment Forms.
