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 revised some of the procedures and requirements effective July 1, 2017.
New volunteers: Clearances for new volunteers may not be more than one year old. These clearances will expire in 60 months (5 years) from the date of the oldest clearance submitted. (example: if your Child Abuse clearance is dated 1/5/17 and everything else is dated 8/2/17, all of your clearances will need to be renewed by 1/5/2022).
Returning Volunteers: In order to be considered a “returning volunteer” you must have submitted all of your required clearances previously and been on the “approved volunteer list” in 2016-2017. Your clearances must be within a sixty (60) month period and will expire sixty (60) months from the date of the oldest clearance submitted. If any of your submitted clearances have expired you will need to provide a complete new packet with all new clearances (see New Volunteers) and then you will be updated on the “approved volunteer list” for another sixty (60) months.
Note: A new “Request to Provide Volunteer Services” and a “Volunteer Affirmation” form will need to be submitted every year that you wish to continue to volunteer.
Note: If you previously volunteered in any of the schools without having clearances because you were not required to have them at the time, you should follow the instructions for New Volunteers and submit a complete “Request to Provide Volunteer Services” packet.
THERE ARE FIVE (5) DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR YOUR PACKET TO BE COMPLETE (Six (6) if you need the Federal FBI fingerprinting). INCOMPLETE PACKETS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
Do NOT send your packet in to the school with your child.
You may drop off complete packets to Dawn Hurt in the Administration Building anytime between 7:00 AM and 3:30 PM, Fax them to 215-659-0904, or scan and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, thank you for your willingness to volunteer in the School District. We hope you enjoy your volunteer experience.
