Required Clearances

The PA Child Protective Services Law changed effective January 1, 2015.  All background checks must be completed using the provider designated by Pennsylvania per the requirements of the law.  Individuals fall into two categories…paid and volunteer…and each has its own set of required clearances. 

Volunteers must provide the following:

  -State Police Criminal Record Check (provided free to volunteers)
  -PA Child Abuse History Clearance  (provided free to volunteers)
  -if PA resident for at least the past 10 years…a complete and notarized Volunteer affidavit
  -if PA resident for less than the past 10 years…FBI Criminal Background Check (requires purchase of clearance). The link below  will take you to the page managed by Identogo for the Commonwealth of PA to help individuals attain an FBI clearance. The service code to apply for volunteer fingerprinting is 1KG6ZJ. The approximate cost will be $21.35.  
 

Individuals who are paid to oversee the children/have direct contact with children must provide the following:

  -State Police Criminal Record Check (requires purchase of clearance)
