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.
Legislation in Pennsylvania requires community members and parents/guardians to obtain clearances in order to volunteer in our schools. Please refer to District Policy 916 to learn about volunteer requirements.
Community members applying to volunteer in the Upper Moreland School District will need to first register online. Additionally, volunteer applicants will need to obtain clearances to volunteer in schools. This includes but is not limited to chaperones, classroom / event volunteers, Home and School Association members, Booster Club, Music Patrons, post-prom, volunteer coaches, and library assistants. Once you are approved to volunteer at UMTSD, you may choose to volunteer not only in your child’s school, but for any volunteer opportunity within the District. Volunteers must be approved for specific events by school administrators.
- New volunteers: Clearances for new volunteers must be dated within one year of submission (No Exceptions). Clearances expire after five (5) years.
- Upper Moreland Township School District students under 18 years of age do not need clearances.
- Contractors and/or those being paid by the School District should contact the Business Office for individual contracts, required clearances and tax forms.
