Clearance Information for Employees, Coaches, and Ancillary Workers

  • Pennsylvania's law requires that all applicants for employment in public and private schools, employees of independent contractors seeking business with public and private schools, and student teacher candidates undergo background checks if they have direct contact (i.e., are responsible for the direct supervision or care) with students.

    Clearances must be obtained for the purposes of employment and, therefore, clearances obtained for other reasons (e.g., adoption, volunteering) and for other organizations are not transferable. New employees must submit the below three (3) clearances that are no older than one year (12 months) from the date of issue, whereas existing employees must renew the below three (3) clearances every sixty (60) months.
