Volunteer Info - Updating of Clearances

ATTENTION VOLUNTEERS - As a volunteer for the District, we want to remind you of the required clearances.  All volunteers MUST have the PA State Police Criminal History Check and PA Child Abuse Clearance.  These clearances are FREE of charge.  Fingerprinting is only needed if you have not been a PA resident for the last 10 consecutive years. If this clearance is not needed, you will sign a disclosure form to that effect.  Clearances are valid for a period of 5 years from the date of issuance.  It is your responsibility to keep your clearances current to remain as an active volunteer for the ELCO School District. 

Non-compliance with the law requires that we do not permit volunteers to work in our buildings.  In the event a volunteer does not submit any or all required documentation, the volunteer will be removed from the volunteer data base, beginning on the due date of the earliest clearances due.  PLEASE DO NOT DELAY IN GETTING YOUR CLEARANCES UPDATED!

Please note - as of September 1, 2019, additional requirements are in place for all new volunteers and those renewing. This information is located on the Volunteer page, under the Community menu.

For your convenience, the links for all clearances are located on the Volunteer page under the Community menu. 

If you have any questions, please contact Gloria Hill at the District Office ( or 717-866-7117 x.10801).
