Act 153
 The law now requires all school employees, contractors
and volunteers having direct contact with children to
obtain new clearances (child abuse background checks
and state and federal criminal history checks) every 36
months.
 Effective December 31, 2014, new volunteers must have
clearances in order to be approved for their positions.
Existing volunteers who do not already have clearances
must get them by July 1, 2015, and those with clearances
that will be more than three years old on July 1, 2015,
must get new ones before July 1.
Act 153
 For purposes of the CPSL clearance requirements, a volunteer is an
adult serving in an unpaid position in which they are individually
responsible for the welfare of a child or have “direct contact with
children” (care, supervision, guidance or control of children, or
routine interaction with children).
 If a volunteer has continuously resided in Pennsylvania for 10 years
AND swears in writing that he or she has never been convicted of a
disqualifying crime in PA, or the corresponding offenses under the
laws of any other jurisdiction, they need only the Department of
Human Services child abuse clearance and the PA criminal history
check; the federal check is not needed.
 Our district website has a link reflecting forms and documentation
related to the background checks.
