Updated Clearances Are Required For All Employees
January 27, 2015
In December 2014, the Child Protective Services Law, Act 435, was amended by the State requiring ALL school district employees to have current clearances.
All school employees, including coaches and extra-curricular employees, are required under Act 435 to provide new clearances every three years. Current employees with clearances older than 3 years as of December 31, 2014 must obtain and provide new ones to the Office of Human Resources within one year of December 31, 2014 (i.e. no later than December 31, 2015).
What clearances are required?
For all Employees of Schools:
Current clearances that are less than 3 years old will expire at the 3-year anniversary, and those employees will need to obtain them before that anniversary, even if that means earlier than December 31, 2015. As is true with the clearances obtained at the inception of employment, these clearances must be obtained and paid for by the employee.
Clearances must be provided to the District Office within the required time frame. Failure to comply will result in disciplinary action and can be grounds for termination of employment.
