    VOLUNTEERING IN UPPER MORELAND TOWNSHIP SCHOOL DISTRICT

    Upper Moreland Township School District values the contributions made by all of its volunteers and appreciates the time and effort provided by you to support the students and staff of the school district.  The safety of the children is our number one priority and as such, the District has developed procedures for those wishing to become an approved volunteer.  To ensure the safety and welfare of our students, and to comply with current applicable state and federal laws, the Upper Moreland School District has developed procedures for those wishing to volunteer.

    Anyone wishing to volunteer in the Upper Moreland School District will need to have all 5 (and in some cases 6) documents/clearances required in order to be an approved volunteer.  This will include all CHAPERONES/HOME & SCHOOL ASSOC./BOOSTER CLUB/MUSIC PATRONS/POST PROM/COACHES/ LIBRARY/and CLASSROOM volunteers.  Once you are approved to volunteer in the UMTSD, you may choose to volunteer not only in your child’s school, but for any volunteer opportunity within the District.

    New volunteers:   Clearances for new volunteers may not be more than one year old (No Exceptions)This will allow all of your clearances, TB Screening and volunteer paperwork to expire within the same five (5) year time period.

    FORMS AND LINKS:  All of the required forms are available on the School District website by clicking “VOLUNTEER FORMS." This will take you to the required document or the State/Federal website where you will apply for your clearances.

    Returning Volunteers: We are no longer requiring returning volunteers to update your Volunteer Request form and Affirmation form each year. Once approved, you will remain on the approved volunteer list for 5 years.  Your forms and clearances, including your TB Screening Report, will remain on file for 60 months (5 years from the date of the oldest clearance submitted). Your volunteer packet will remain active as your child moves from one school building to the next over the course of the five year period.

    Employees of UMTSD: Complete the Volunteer Request Form and check the box for “I am an UMTSD Employee and my clearances are on file in the Human Resources Office.”

    TB Screening Report: this form can be completed by our Middle or High School nurses, your family doctor, or the Montgomery County Health Dept.
