This week we learned from the Governor's office that beginning July 25, 2015 there will be changes to the fees associated with two of the three background checks for volunteers. As of that date, the costs associated to the background checks at the state level (PA Child Abuse Report and PA State Criminal Report) for volunteers will be waived. The third background check, the Federal Criminal Report (FBI Fingerprinting), will remain in effect in accordance with the previously published guidelines and costs. As before, if a volunteer has lived in Pennsylvania continuously for the past 10 years, he or she is not required to obtain the FBI fingerprinting report if that volunteer signs the WSD Volunteer Disclosure Form.
WSD understands that many volunteers have already obtained the PA Child Abuse and the PA State Criminal Reports at the combined cost of $20. We apologize for this inconvenience, but please know the issue is out of the school district's control. It is unclear at this point how the clearances will be processed without payment beginning July 25th but we will provide further information when it becomes available.

Thank you for your attention to this important information. As always, we appreciate your willingness to volunteer in our schools.
