Thank you for your support
Parents/guardians are welcome and encouraged to volunteer their services in the school. Volunteer opportunities include: PTO events, Kindergarten writing, library assistance, chaperoning class trips, as well as serving as homeroom parents. When chaperoning a class trip, parents/guardians should be aware that we expect students to return to school and stay in school for the remainder of the day.
School volunteer clearance requirement
For those who wish to serve as volunteers in the Penn-Delco School District, state law now requires the following documents to be completed and submitted to the district prior to volunteering:
- Pennsylvania Criminal History Record (Act 34)
- Child Abuse History Clearance (Act 151)
- FBI Federal Criminal History Record check (may be waived if you have been a continuous resident in Pennsylvania for the previous ten years).
In accordance with law, these documents must be updated once every five (5) years in order to continue as a volunteer. Clearances must be less than one year old at the time of submission. Original forms must be brought to the office of the school where you will volunteer and they will be forwarded to the central administrative offices for processing. (Parents/guardians volunteering in more than one school need only submit clearances to the district at one location). No parent/guardian may serve as a trip chaperone, or in any volunteer capacity that involves routine interaction with students, unless they have completed and submitted the 3 required clearance documents. For additional information regarding clearances, please refer to our district website.
