Clearances

  • The following clearances are required to work or volunteer in school districts:

    Federal Criminal History Check

    Please use the website https://uenroll.identogo.com for this clearance, not the fingerprint card by mail.

        • Fee required
        • Login using service code 1KG6XN
        • Go to Schedule or Manage Appointment and complete the online form to register for an appointment.
        • The staff at the location will perform the fingerprint scan and provide you with a receipt containing a Universal Enrollment ID (UEID). Please provide the district with a copy of your receipt/UEID so that our District Office Secretary can retrieve your results.

    Pennsylvania Criminal History Check

    Please use the website https://epatch.state.pa.us/Home for this clearance, not the printed form.

        • Free for volunteers
        • Go to New Record and follow the instructions through to the Certification Page. Once the Search Results Table appears, click on the Control Number (write down the Control Number for future reference). The Record Check Details page is opened. Click on the Certification Page to access your official Clearance. The Record Check Details page is only a receipt and not acceptable as a clearance.
        • Print two certification pages—one for you and one for your personnel file.

    Pennsylvania Child Abuse Clearance

    Please use the website https://www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis/public/home for this clearance, not the printed form.

        • Free for volunteers
        • The Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance application can now be submitted online. You must create an account or log in if you already have an account. Note: you will need an email address to create an account. Creating an account and submitting your clearance application online will give you immediate access to your results or the status of your results if your results cannot be processed immediately.

    All clearances should be submitted along with the ENTIRE volunteer packet to the building in which you are volunteering.
