Volunteer Clearance Requirements for 2016-17 School Year
** August 30, 2016 Update: The district will NOT require the PA Child Abuse Clearance to be obtained yearly for volunteers who have submitted a Child Abuse Clearance in the past 57 months.
 
Upon clarification from the State, an $8 fee is required if the clearance is applied for within 57 months of a previous issuance. Due to this cost, Blackhawk will not require the re-submittal each year.   NEW Volunteers will still need to obtain the clearance. The FIRST TIME application is FREE. 
 
All Volunteers WILL need to update the PA State Police Criminal Background Check on an annual basis. This is free. **
 
UPDATE -- NEW DISTRICT GUIDANCE FOR 2016-17 VOLUNTEER REQUIREMENTS 
 
District Administration has implemented a new YEARLY CLEARANCES RENEWAL POLICY.
 
For the safety of our students BSD will now require each volunteer to submit NEW clearances each year.  
 
If you have NEVER volunteered with BSD in prior years you are required to submit the following:
 
1. 2016-17 BSD Volunteer Clearances Submittal Form -- no cost
2. Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance (CY113) -- no cost for 1st time.
3. Pennsylvania Criminal Record checks (SP4-164) -- no cost
4. Federal Bureau of Investigations Criminal Background Check -- $27.00
 
If you have volunteered with BSD in prior years you are required to submit the following:
 
1. 2016-17 BSD Volunteer Clearances Submittal Form -- no cost
2. Pennsylvania Criminal Record checks (SP4-164) -- no cost
3. Unpaid Volunteer Affidavit -- no cost
 
All volunteers must have clearances on file BEFORE their first day of volunteering with our students! If you do not have clearances on file, you will not be allowed to volunteer at BSD schools.
