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:

Act 34 of 1985 – PA Criminal History Record Check
Act 151 of 1994 – PA Child Abuse History Clearance
Act 114 - FBI Criminal History Report

Additional information can be found on the North Schuylkill Employment Page.

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. 

If you are unsure if your clearances are older than 3 years, please send an email request to mcraig@northschuylkill.net


The Spartan Spotlight

Name: Patricia Dougherty-Wade

Building: High School

Subject/Grade: Social Studies

We have all had to endure the lucid nature of working through a construction project. Patricia recently learned that pipes above her classroom needed to be shut down in order to continue Phase Two construction. With very little notice Patricia had to pack up and relocate. While I’m sure she was stressed and not happy about the news, you would not have known it if you spoke with her.
