Volunteer Clearance Process Now Easier, Cheaper
The district's requirements for volunteer clearances is now simpler and may be less expensive.
The good news:
- If you have lived in Pennsylvania continuously for the last 10 years, FBI fingerprinting is not necessary. A residency affidavit may be submitted in lieu of the FBI check.
- Clearances are now valid for 5 years.
If you plan to volunteer – and we hope you do – please read the requirements of the clearance process on the school district's website.
Please consult the BOPs calendar to stay informed about concerts, date changes and other important events.
The Band and Orchestra Parents (BOPs) bylaws were updated and approved last year. The bylaws are available for download here.
