UPDATE: Important Notice Regarding Volunteer Clearance Requirements and Revised FAQs
As the result of new amendments to the Child Protective Services Law (CPSL) enacted on July 1, 2015, implementation of the requirement for volunteer clearances will not take effect until July 1, 2016. This means that our school volunteers do not need background clearances for the current school year (2015-2016). For the 2016-2017 school year, only volunteers with regular and repeated contact with students who are responsible for the care, supervision, guidance or control of children will need clearances.
Additionally, renewal of clearances will be required every five (5) years.
