School Employees - electronic applications for clearances:
According to Act 153 of the Child Protective Services law, which went into effect on December 31, 2014, school employees are now required to obtain new clearances every sixty (60) months, or five (5) years. Clearances include the Criminal Background check, Child Abuse clearance, and FBI Fingerprint clearance. An employee’s renewal date is based on the date of the oldest of the three (3) clearances he/she has on file with the District. This new clearance requirement is a
condition of continued employment
and is done at the employee’s expense.
